Eddie CochranDark Lonely Street (10 inch LP & CD) ... LP
Liberty/Bear Family (Germany), 1957. New Copy 10 inch LP & CD ... $34.99 39.99
A really cool package of work from the legendary Eddie Cochran – one of the first great rockers to emerge in the 50s, and an artist who left this planet way too soon! The LP looks like a vintage 10" record – with great graphics, and a run of Cochran gems that include "Teenage Heaven", "Little Angel", "C'Mon Everybody", "Dark Lonely Street", "Summertime Blues", and "One Kiss" – plus a rare 2-track stereo take of "Pretty Girl", the backing track "My Way", and "Strollin Guitar" by The Kelly Four. Then, the CD brings together 28 tracks in all – much more than the LP – with additional rarities from Eddie, including a UK TV appearance and other rare versions – and related cuts from Jerry Neal, Ray Stanley, Baker Knight, and Bob Denton. There's also a cool book, too – and the sound and the graphics are great! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Martin DennyExotica Vol 2 ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good ... $11.99
The second album in Denny's legendary Exotica trilogy – a set of records that provided the extreme definition of the small sub-genre that today has become the stuff of legend! Denny's still working here in his classic format – a small group with heavy piano lines, playful percussion, and some birdcalls sung by the members of the group! The set's a mix of strange songs from strange sources, all given the sublime Denny twist – and titles include "Singing Bamboos", "Escales", "August Bells", "Ebb Tide", "Rush Hour In Hong Kong", and "Soshu Night Serenade".

Liberty, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Plenty of surf number stepping out here – but often with that great second-chapter Beach Boys mode – that pre-Pet Sounds style that's often got some darker currents underneath! The pair are great in the lead, and get a bit of harmony support from The Fantastic Baggys – and some great instrumental assistance from Hal Blaine – who's really knocking it out of the park with a host of west coast wonderfuls – all produced by Jan with a nice echoey vibe! Titles include "Ride The Wild Surf", "Tell Em I'm Surfin", "The Restless Surfer", "Skateboarding (part 1)", "Surfin Wild", and "The Submarine Races". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz CrusadersPowerhouse (Applause version) ... CD
Liberty/Applause, 1968. Used ... $12.99
The title's no lie, because the Jazz Crusaders are certainly a powerhouse here – blowing with a tightness and soulful swing that few other groups could hope to match! The overall structure of the album is a bit more focused than some of their other sessions from the late 60s – in that the songs are shorter, and more in the mode of some of the group's earlier work – but they're also still colored with plenty of hipper late 60s touches, including lots of electric bass on the bottom, some great electric keys from Joe Sample, and a groove that's definitely on the more righteous side of the soul spectrum! Original tunes include "Upstairs", "Fire Water", "Sting Ray", and "Cookie Man" – and the record features great covers of "Promises, Promises", "Love Is Blue", and "Hey Jude". CD

Jazz CrusadersUh Huh (Applause pressing) ... CD
Applause/Liberty, 1967. Used ... $14.99
Killer Jazz Crusaders material – exactly the kind of record that really had the group coming into their own in the second half of the 60s – finding a rich new groove that few other combos could match! The record captures the group at a perfect time – a point when they were breaking past the tighter shorter formula of earlier material, and moving into a slightly more spiritual conception – yet one that still had a hard swing and a deeply soulful vibe! The record's a prime example of the never-ending energy held by the band – near-perfect on every track, and played with a sense of creative expression that easily puts them at the top of the soul jazz scene in the late 60s! Titles include "Night Theme", "Air Waves", "Uh Huh", "Watts Happening", and "Ice Water". CD

Earl Klugh's definitely got his heart on his strings here – working in this warm, mellow mode that's mighty nice – set to gentle orchestrations by Dave Matthews, which work perfect for Klugh's groove! There's nothing too over the top here, and Earl mixes acoustic and electric in a great sort of blend – using the former instrument to help keep a sort of soul to the proceedings, and never let things get too slick. Titles include "Heart String", "Spanish Night"," Pretty World", "Rayna", "Waiting For Cathy", "I'll See You Again", and "Acoustic Lady (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Julie LondonAll Through The Night ... LP
Liberty, 1965. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
An oft-overlooked gem from Julie London – a dreamy album of Cole Porter tunes, and one that has her singing with small group backing, very much in the mode of some of her best early work for the Liberty label! The group on the album's the Bud Shank Quintet – with Shank on alto and flute, Joe Pass on guitar, Russ Freeman on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Colin Bailey on drums – a great little combo who give the work a light, lyrical feel, and a bit less of the sadness of other London albums. Freeman did the arrangements, and titles include "So In Love", "Get Out Of Town", "Easy To Love", "At Long Last Love", and "In The Still Of The Night". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Julie LondonIn Person At The Americana ... CD
Liberty/DRG, 1964. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A rare live session from Julie London – surprising in that most of her classic work for Liberty was put together with some real studio magic! Yet this time around, the live setting's a real charm – one that makes for a whole new side of London's personality – showing the singer to be much more of an entertainer than we would have expected. The solitary sultriness of Julie's studio albums is really on the backburner – at least in the overall feel fo the recording, with its pronounced audience noise, oft-swinging arrangements, and male vocal quartet in the mix – although when London starts to sing, things often hit that familiar mode, too. Titles include a very boozy version of "Daddy" – almost drunken, we'd say – plus "Lonesome Road", "Send For Me", "Gotta Move", "I Love Paris", "Cry Me A River", and "By Myself". CD

Liberty, 1963. Very Good ... $19.99
A sweet little swinger from Julie London – a record that goes for a bit of a Latin vibe, in ways that change things up nicely! Ernie Freeman handles the music, so the groove isn't really straight Latin – but more of a syncopated approach that's different from the smoother London sounds on other Liberty albums, topped with some bold trumpet flourishes and marimba bits, too – ala the sounds starting up over at A&M Records! Titles include "Perfida", "Adios", "Vaya Con Dios", "You Belong To My Heart", "Sway", and "Yours". LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty, 1963. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked gem from Julie London's early 60s years on Liberty Records – a time when she was changing up her sound a bit, but still staying strong as one of the sexiest vocalists on the west coast scene! Ernie Freeman handles the backing, and he brings in an undercurrent of soul that's mighty nice – some slight blusesy touches at the bottom of the arrangements, and a few occasional horn solos that give the record a nice bite, even when mellow. Titles include "That Sunday That Summer", "Charade", "Night Life", "Wheel Of Fortune", "Since I Fell For You", "Fools Rush In", "I Wish You Love", and a swinging version of "Wives & Lovers"!

Julie London couldn't look sexier on the cover – reclining in bed, on the telephone with the suggestive title emblazoned across the top – almost like some sleezy ad from the back pages of a local newspaper! The music more than delivers on the suggestiveness, too – and features lush backings by Andre Previn, on an assortment of tunes made famous by male vocal greats of the 50s – tunes that really take on a new sense of life in the hands of Julie – getting special up-close treatment that's really great! Titles include "A Stranger In Town", "Learnin The Blues", "One For My Baby", "It's A Blue World", "When I Fall In Love", and "The More I See You". LP, Vinyl record album

Julie LondonYummy Yummy Yummy ... LP
Liberty, 1969. Sealed ... $19.99
A very unusual album for Julie London – one of her few recordings ever to break the more traditional jazz format, and go for a mod sort of swinging 60s sound! The set features London versions of hits by The Doors, Beatles, Monkees, and others – all given a gentle groove by Tommy Oliver, who brings in just enough jazz to make the music work for Julie. And given her great style of singing – still quite laidback and sultry – the tunes take on a really unique feel here – hardly covers at all, and more whole new conceptions of cuts that include "Light My Fire", "Like To Get To Know You", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Sunday Mornin", "Mighty Quinn", "Without Him", "And I Love Him", and "Come To Me Slowly".

Nitty Gritty Dirt BandNitty Gritty Dirt Band ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
Brilliant early work from Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – a group who grew up in the same Cali sunshine that birthed The Byrds, but who definitely took a very unique path in the way they blended together folk, rock, and country! These guys show their wit on their sleeves a bit more than in later years – almost a Mike Nesmith sense of their style, seen from the outside – with an approach that's kind of a running commentary on what they're trying to do, even at the same time they're doing it so well. Songs are plenty playful, with almost a late 60s Warner Brothers revision of nostalgia at times – and titles include "Buy For Me The Rain", "Song to Jutta", "Candy Man", "Dismal Swamp", "Crazy Words Crazy Tune", and "You're Gonna Get It In The End".

PetardsPetards – Anthology (6CD set) ... CD
Liberty/Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $112.99 149.99
The complete recordings of The Petards – a legendary German group who are maybe best-known for a few freewheeling albums on Liberty at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – but who also have a lot more music here to offer! The set begins before most of the work we've ever heard from the group – and clearly shows a strong influence from UK beat groups at the start, from their English language lyrics down to their way with a catchy tune. But as with most of the English beat group generation, these guys also really took off by the end of the 60s – leaning more on their jazzy elements, lengthening their tunes, and hitting modes both progressive and trippy – all brought together here in this massive 6CD set, complete with the usual hefty Bear Family attention to detail in the hardcover book and liner notes. 118 tracks in all!

Ike & Tina TurnerCome Together/Nuff Said ... CD
Liberty/BGO (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A pair of Ike & Tina Turner classics – back to back on one CD! First up is Come Together – a key crossover set for the soul duo! Ike and Tina Turner crossed over big by this point in their career – grabbing a lot of ears that were mostly listening to rock music, but who finally got that many of their heroes were influenced by the pair – who were then throwing things back towards all their copycats with a record like this! Case in point is the album's famous cover of "Come Together" – which has Tina hitting some of her slinkiest, sexiest modes on record – while also mixing things up with plenty of deep soul elements on other tunes too! There's a great blend of rock and soul – Fillmore vs Muscle Shoals – and in addition to "Come Together", other titles include "Contact High", "I Want To Take You Higher", "Honky Tonk Woman", "Evil Man", "Doin It", and "Young & Dumb". Nuff Said is one of the most iconic albums from the team of Ike & Tina Turner – a set recorded at a time when the duo were complete superstars in both the world of rock and soul – and were able to step out with a heck of a lot of power in the grooves! Ike produced and arranged the album in his studio, and he also changed the name of Kings Of Rhythm to The Family Vibes – showing that strong shift they'd made into funkier modes for the 70s – augmented here by the presence of Leon Ware's songwriting talents on a number of the songs. Tina's the real star, of course – and sounds tremendous on titles that include "Baby", "Sweet Flustrations", "I Love What You Do To Me", "Tell The Truth", "I Love Baby", and "Nuff Said". CD

Bobby's got a style that's clearly trying to be in the rock and roll camp – and which shares some key vocal modes with Buddy Holly – but Garrett's production here adds in fuller strings and a nice echoey overtone that pushes plenty of pop inflections in the tunes!

Si gets some great help on the records from Bob Florence – an arranger who really knows how to make a bigger band swing with the kind of energy of a smaller group – packing a lot of tight punch into the statements of the horns, yet allowing soloists to break out with a really lively flair. Titles include "Magenta", "Green Fields", "A La Mode", "Waltz In Jazz Time", "Cassandra", and "The Sweetest Sounds". LP, Vinyl record album

An amazing little set that's as compelling as the title and cover might imply – and easily one of our favorite Martin Denny albums ever! There's a sound here that is, actually, quite "hypnotique" – as Denny's core combo is expanded by some larger arrangements, Japanese instrumentation, and even some cool vocals by the Jack Halloran singers – all of which serve to create these pulsating musical lines that shift and sway with an extremely dreamy quality, one that can easily hypnotize us with its musical magic! The added sound really adds a lot to Denny's core group – and the record has some great tracks like "Jungle Madness", "American In Bali", "Chinese Lullaby", "Hypnotique", "Scimitar", and "Voodoo Dreams".

✨✧ Abbey LincolnAbbey Lincoln's Affair – A Story Of A Girl In Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Liberty/Capitol, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the strangest things about Abbey Lincoln's career is the fact that, despite her hip affiliations with the left end of the jazz spectrum, she's actually been slotted into a fair number of straighter projects, not only in music, but in film as well. This album's a perfect example of that – and may well be the reason for Abbey's later leanings towards the left – as here, in her debut LP, she comes off as a dreamy girl singer, recorded by Liberty almost in a mode that's similar to Julie London or some of their other gal stars – with complicated backings from Benny Carter and Marty Paich. The record is lacking the stark captivating quality of Abbey's later records, but it does have a certain kind of charm – especially as the love themes in the set are all-adult, at a mature level that you'd really only hear from a rare few other singers, like Shirley Horn or Lorez Alexandria. Titles include "Two Cigarettes In The Dark", "Take Me In Your Arms", "No More", "Affair", "This Can't Be Love", "I Wake Up Smiling", and "Love Walked In". CD

A classic Blue Note meeting of two of the label's top talents in the early 60s – Hammond hero Jimmy Smith, and the up-and-rising Stanley Turrentine on tenor! Turrentine's simply great at this point – playing with a raspy edge on the bottom of his tone, sounding dark and mysterious – not nearly as sweet as in later years – and Smith is wonderful too – still with traces of the rough experimental approach to the Hammond that he used in his first few Blue Note sides, but with a bit more of a defined and swinging sound – all given a nice kick by the drums of Donald Bailey and guitar of Quentin Warren. Titles include "Stone Cold Dead in the Market", "Red Top", "Prayer Meetin", "I Almost Lost My Mind", and "Picknickin'". CD

Classic 80s funk from Xavier – a group led by bassist Ernest Smith, who'd already had plenty of practice working with Isaac Hayes, The Midnight Movers, and The Coasters during their funky late 60s years! The groove here is similar to some of the other tight funk groups on Liberty at the time – especially Dayton – but Xavier's groove is a bit leaner, too – very nicely turned towards a modern dancefloor with its emphasis on bass upfront in the mix, in a mode that's often nicely placed between boogie and rollerskating jams! Ayanna Little sings lead vocals with Xavier – and the set also features some wicked keyboard work from Rahni Harris – on tracks that include "What Goes Around", "Truly Devoted", "Work That Sucker To Death", and "Love Is On The One".

Liberty/Jackpot, 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The birth of a sound and the birth of a legend – Martin Denny's first album in the Exotica series, and a record so great it named an entire genre! Denny certainly didn't invent the tropical style of easy listening that came to be known as "exotica" in the 50s – but with a record like this, he delivered the goods better than anyone else – by taking away all the too-sweet styles of Hawaiian music, and serving up a stripped-down, jazzy kind of sound!

✨✧ Martin DennyQuiet Village ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An undisputed classic in the exotica genre – and the record that yielded Martin Denny his biggest hit! The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare percussion, rhythmic piano, and just the right amount of vibes and bird calls to give the track a really haunting feel. That approach is echoed throughout the set – with shifting instrumentation that includes celeste, bongos, marimbas, and marimbula as well! Titles include "Quiet Village", "Paradise Found", "Sake Rock", "Martinique", "Tune From Rangoon", and "Pagan Love Song". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ GroundhogsScratching The Surface (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Liberty/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Classic work from The Groundhogs – one of the heaviest-hitting of the UK blues rock groups, and still one of the best! The sound is lean and raw here – with guitar and vocals from TS McPhee and harmonica from Steve Rye – next to bass from Pete Cruikshank and Ken Pustelnik – all recorded in a spare setting by Mike Batt, who really keeps things nice and raw! There's less of the psych or hard rock elements that some of the group's contemporaries would soon pick up – and in a way, these guys might be the closest the UK ever came to the Canned Heat sound. Title sinclude "Man Trouble", "Married Man", "Come Back Baby", "Still A Fool", "Early In The Morning", "Nor More Doggin", and "Waking Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tony McPhee & FriendsMe & The Devil/I Asked For Water She Gave Me Gasoline ... CD
Liberty/BGO (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Two early solo albums from Tony McPhee – one of which is more of a mixed group affair overall! First up is Me & The Devil – fantastic acoustic blues from Tony McPhee – maybe best known as a member of The Groundhogs, but working here in a looser, more stripped-down mode – acoustic guitar, harmonica, and spare rhythms – all of which give Tony plenty of space to stretch out in the lead! As with Alexis Korner during the end of the 60s, McPhee's clearly influenced by older American blues, but is turning the phrasing towards a mode that would be picked up and shifted in just a year or two by bigger groups in the rock world – a Swan Song legacy that includes Led Zeppelin and Bad Company. Yet in in the all-acoustic, very rootsy sound here the approach is very different – and the record also features some equally bluesy vocals by a young Jo-Ann Kelly! Titles include "Elevator Woman", "Duckin & Dodgin", "Same Thing On My Mind", "Broke Down Engine", "Buy You A Diamond Ring", and "You Better Mind". I Asked For Water is a very cool collection of bluesier work from the UK underground at the end of the 60s – a set put together by Tony TS McPhee of The Groundhogs – with work by that group, Brett Marvin & The Thunderbolts, and the Andy Fernbach Connexion – working in different settings, and with other tracks that feature vocals by Jo-Ann Kelly, who you might know from later soul fame – as well as John Lewis, Jim Pitts, and Graham Hines. Yet all work is in a country blues mode – but with phrasing that really points the way towards near-immediate rock transformations of such a sound – on titles that include "Oh Death", "Dust My Blues", "Built My Hopes Too High", "Nervous", "Boogie Woman", and "I'm So Tired".

✨✧ BuzzcocksDifferent Kind Of Tension ... CD
Liberty/Domino, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The third album from the great Buzzcocks – one of the most fiercely melodic bands of the punk era, and one of the best bands for tuneful, yet barbed songwriting of the late 70s, period! Different Kind Of Tension is a pretty accurate title for this set, the last of the first wave of the group's career, with weird electronic flourishes and artier sounds to be found than the furiously straightforward previous couple of records. It's not as radical of a change of pace as, say, Wire's progress from the first to third albums, but a different kind of tension, as they say. Titles include "Mad Mad Judy", "You Say You Don't Love Me", "Hollow Inside", "I Believe", "Radio Nine", "Paradise", "Sitting Round At Home", and "I Don't Know What To Do With My Life". CD

AmnestyFree Your Mind – The 700 West Sessions ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
Rare funk from the Indy scene of the early 70s – the long-overdue release of material recorded by a really hard-jamming, horn-heavy combo! Amnesty have a sound that's awash in the best large group influences of the time – a bit of Earth Wind & Fire, a bit of Parliament/Funkadelic, but also a grittier, more guitar-based groove at times too – one that rumbles heavily at the bottom of the rhythms, with a sound that's like Norman Whitfield-era Motown, taken to much greater extremes! There's actually a lot more Detroit going on in the work than Indy – but the horns also have a jazzier, more open-ended quality too – not just parts penned for simple funky rhythms, but ones that show some influence from the more righteous side of the jazz spectrum. The material was all recorded on two dates in 1973 – but only issued here for the first time – and together, the tracks are a great example of a hip group from the underground, really letting loose with a great sense of freedom. There's some vocals on the record, but almost more of a focus on the instrumentation overall – and titles include "Can I Help You", "Love Fades", "Trouble Will Remain", "We've Come A Long Way", "Liberty", "Mister President", "Free Your Mind", "We Have Love", and "Lord Help Me".

Anthony Braxton & John McDonough6 Duos (Wesleyan) 2006 ... CD
Nessa, 2010. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
One of the more obscure Anthony Braxton albums of the first decade of the century – but also one that's completely well worth seeking out, as it's got this warm spirit of collaborative creation that takes us back to some of his best moments of the 70s and 80s! The record features duets with trumpeter John McDonough – a Braxton fanatic who's clearly a great partner for the saxophonist to spin out ideas – trumpet notes both muted and muted, mixing with Braxton's work on alto, baritone, sopranino, and soprano sax – each with a very different sense of interplay from track to track! The album features two long, very out numbers – "Improvisation" and "Composition 168 + (103)" – then moves into a sublime sonic exercise on "Massive Breath Attack", offers a surprising reading of "Hail To The Spirit Of Liberty", and also includes the tunes "Finnish Line" and "Schizoid".

Jack Bongo BurgerEnd On Bongos (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Hi Fi/Modern Harmonic, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A sweet set from that great record moment when Latin styles were coming into play with the hipper sounds of the bachelor pad world! Jack "Bongo" Burger was a west coast percussionist with a very similar style to Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo – and in fact, since they're both named Jack, and have a bongo middle name, we always wonder whether or not they're the same person! Whatever the case, this album's a tasty batch of bongo-heavy tracks – with a style that's similar to some of Costanzo's work on Liberty, although perhaps with slightly less of a Latin bent. The group includes Buddy Collette on flute and sax, plus piano, trumpet, electric bass, and some nice odd percussion. Kind of like a combo of some of Collette's jazz work, and the exotic stuff that was also appearing on the Hi Fi label. Tracks include "Jordu", "China Nights Mambo", "Negre Setin", "Chiu Chiu", and "Mambo Burger". LP, Vinyl record album

Martin DennyTaste Of India ... LP
Liberty/Pleasure For Music, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 About April 30, 2021
Martin Denny takes a tip from the sound of the East – adding some slight Indian flavors to his usual exotica groove – with the help of arranger George Tipton! Most of the music is still in the lush piano instrumental mode that Denny was using in these later Liberty years – but things are definitely groovy throughout, even if the Indian elements are sometimes used in ways that are more bossa than anything else. Maybe not the clearest picture you'll get of the sound of India in the 60s – but a sweet little record, with titles that include "Incense & Peppermints", "Live For Life", "Touch Of India", "Hypnotique", and "Indrani". LP, Vinyl record album
This title is scheduled for release about Friday, April 30.

✨✧ Don TikiForbidden Sounds Of Don Tiki ... CD
Taboo, 1997. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Better than you might think – and a sparkling selection of recent exotica work that's very much in the best tradition of Martin Denny or Les Baxter, but which also goes far beyond that style, into a wealth of groovy modes that also hits some great 60s soundtrack moments! The first few tunes are very much in a late 50s Capitol/Liberty mode – but as the album progresses, it hits a style that's much more than you'd expect from the exotic cover – kind of a blend of Lalo Schifrin-type grooves with some bossa and 60s LA jazz influences. The album's got some killer percussion by Carlinhos De Oliveira, and solid jazz basis to some of the playing on the best tracks – a feature that takes the record way past the simple retro mode that usually ruins a project of this nature. Titles include "Exotica 97", "Close Your Eyes", "Hot Like Lava", "Barbi In Bali", "Clutch Cargo Cult", "Da T'ing He Grow", and "Itchy Palms". CD

A sweet keyboard set from Shaun Martin – a pianist who does a great job of mixing electric and acoustic elements here, driven on strongly by the acoustic bass of Matt Ramsey and powerful drums of Mike Mitchell! The set's funky at times, but never lets the rhythms completely dominate – as Martin's got this way of mixing his keyboard elements together with a richness that's completely great on its own – and which only sounds better once the bass and drums kick into gear and really set the tunes on fire! The set features an unusual take on "Afro Blue", which uses a heavy drum break – and an equally sweet take on "Naima", again with an unusual sense of rhythm – plus the originals "Riddle Me This", "The Light In Dark Place", and "Liberty Of The Rising Son".

✨✧ Jimmy McGriffElectric Funk ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of Jimmy's funkiest albums ever – a sweeeeet batch of short, hard, and funky cuts – and a record that ranks right up there with the mighty Soul Sugar for sheer funkiness! Jimmy takes an upbeat and easygoing approach to the late 60s funk sound, with a nice, rubbery bass and the organ sound just killer – but would expect less from McGriff on that front? Truly funky and totally irresistible stuff, with sinister, measured moments that bigger and heavier pretty quickly - kind of prefiguring 70s blacksploitation soundtrack vibes in spots! The album's great all the way through – tight arrangements by Horace Ott, who also plays electric piano on the set, making for a clean, cool 2-keys kind of groove. Titles include "Spear for Moondog" (parts 1 & 2), "Tight Times", "Funky Junk", "Bird Wave", and "Back on the Track". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite Lee Morgan albums – and one of his least known! Recorded in the crucial last 5 years of his life, this album is a sparkling mix of hard bop, soul jazz, and slight bits of modernism – that magical mix that Lee was hitting as he reached farther and farther with his music – an amazing legacy in jazz that has us loving every Morgan session from 1965 onward! Lee's playing in very comfortable territory, with a group that includes Bennie Maupin on tenor, Cedar Walton on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – but that doesn't mean that the proceedings are relaxed at all, because the interplay between the players is flawless, and they use their familiarity as a great springboard to soar off into rich new territory. Lee wrote all the tunes on the record – like "Caramba", "Suicide City", and "Soulita". An excellent record throughout, and one that we'd never part with! LP, Vinyl record album

Willie NelsonTexas Willie ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 24.99
Very early work from Willie Nelson – a set that doesn't have much in the way of notes, but which includes a huge amount of material we've never heard before – a total of 40 early tracks that show that Willie was a genius right from the start! The tunes are likely all originals from the mighty pen of the young singer – soon to create a few big hits for more famous country contemporaries – and Willie's presentation of the material is great, with a great edge in his voice, usually set to small combo backings that have just the right moody vibe to match his lyrics! These are less like demos than cuts that feel like they were lifted from small label 45s before Nelson hit the bigger time at Liberty and RCA – with titles that include "I'm Going To Lose A Lot Of Teardrops", "Blame It On The Times", "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth", "Any Old Arms Won't Do", "Both Ends Of The Candle", "Right From Wrong", "Pride Wins Again", "A New Way To Cry", "Misery Mansion", "Let's Pretend", "Why Are You Picking On Me", "Where My House Lives", and "Waiting Time".

Osaka MonaurailRiptide (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Shout (Japan), 2014. Used ... $19.99
Tremendous work from one of our favorite funk combos ever – Japan's legendary Osaka Monaurail, easily one of the sharpest, tightest, most soulful groups of the past 20 years! These guys have a really no-nonsense approach to funk – from the top to the bottom, from the execution to the production, from the street to the speaker – with a sound that's one of the few to really get a pure approach to the best funky 45 material of the late 60s and early 70s! There's no hoke, no easy references, no simplistic retro sensibilities – just rock-solid, razor-sharp instrumentation – at a level to match the James Brown band on late 60s King Records – who are clearly an inspiration for the crew. This set's got all their best funky 45 energy firmly intact, but also features a few longer numbers with sweet solos too – and as usual, the vocals are completely unique – raw funk, but with an accented twist that really grabs us. Titles include "Riptide", "The Horse", "Liberty", "Solar Eclipse", "Calinga", "Fruit Basket", and "Determination". CD

Blue Note, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Duke Pearson knocks it out of the park with this one – perfectly summing up all the new ideas in jazz arranging and large ensemble work he'd been exploring at Blue Note – and pushing things way way past his previous small group material as well! The album's quite different than most other 60s iterations of big band jazz – as Pearson's got a way of making all instruments come together on the rhythms, then exploding with subtle colors and soulful tones – yet all at a level that's never forced or gimmicky at all. It helps that he's got a tremendous lineup of players here – both Lew Tabackin and Frank Foster on tenor (the latter of whom does some arranging for the record) – plus Pepper Adams on baritone, Marvin Stamm and Randy Brecker on trumpets, Garnett Brown and Jimmy Cleveland on trombones, Jerry Dodgion and Al Gibbons on alto, and the rhythm team of Bob Cranshaw on bass and Mickey Roker on drums. Duke plays superb piano with a really sophisticated touch, but it's really his strength as an arranger that makes the whole thing come together beautifully. Andy Bey sings on a version of "I'm Tired Cryin Over You" – and other titles include "Amanda", "Tones For Joan's Bones", "Dad Digs Mom", "Disapproachment", and "Make It Good". LP, Vinyl record album

The title tells it all – as trumpeter Charlie Sepulveda serves up a genre-defining set of Latin jazz – a record that's every bit about the jazz solos and instrumentation in the lineup, as it is the Latin rhythms at the core! The main group is just a sextet – no giant Latin ensemble, and instead a combo that plays with the fluid intensity of a hardbop group – led by Charlie Sepulveda on trumpet, with Norberto Ortiz on tenor, Eduardo Zayas on piano, Gabriel Rodriguez on bass, Francisco Alcala on drums, and Nicholas Cozaboom on percussion. There's some famous guest help on the record – trumpet from Randy Brecker, trombone from Steve Turre, and flute from Nestor Torres – but the main group is more than enough to hold our interest, as they really cook on long tracks that include "Liberty", "Tales From The Wall", "Peer Magic", "Estampas", "Firm Roots", and "Alfonsina Y El Mar".

Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Really groovy work from the young Bobby Vee – a pop-rocker who was plenty big back in his day, and for good reason too! Bobby's got a great way with a catchy tune – a voice that would be too sweet in more mainstream productions, but which gets just the right approach here at Liberty Records – bringing in enough guitar-based rock instrumentation to keep things interesting – making Vee a much hipper singer overall than contemporaries like Tommy Sands or Bobby Rydell! And as with other entries in this excellent series, the package not only features some of the best moments from these years, but also presents them in a great way too – lots of notes and images, to support a set of 35 tracks that include "Punish Her", "Tears On My Pillow", "School Day", "Take Good Care Of My Baby", "Little Queenie", "Flyin High", "One Last Kiss", "I Gotta Know", "Rubber Ball", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "Devil Or Angel", "Little Star", and "More Than I Can Say" – plus a cool "Radio Spot" too!

✨✧ JD AllenRadio Flyer ... CD
Savant, 2017. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Extremely angular work from tenorist JD Allen – working here with a quartet that's as loose on rhythms as he is on his saxophone solos – coming together in a style that's freewheeling and open-minded! The group features a strong element in the guitar of Liberty Ellman – used in ways that are sometimes quite subtle – with notes that ring out almost in the background of the work on drums by Rudy Royston, and the wonderfully powerful bass of Gregg August – whose force works in nice contrast to the more elliptical sounds coming from the drums and guitar. Allen's horn hangs somewhere in a space between both forces – shifting effortlessly through space, and twisting and turning in the process – serving up fantastic flurries of dark-edged sound on the album's long tracks. Royston is amazing – the album's a great testament to his growing power in recent years – and titles include "Daedalus", "Ghost Dance"," Heureux", "Radio Flyer", "Sitting Bull", and "The Angelus Bell".

One of Donald Byrd's most fantastic records for Blue Note – and one of three gems that he recorded with the great Sonny Red on alto sax! Byrd and Red work magnificently together – and the two of them play with a tightness and funkiness that's missing from a lot of their other records as leaders – this really sharp edge that makes Sonny sound even better than ever, and a slight funkiness in Byrd's trumpet – which really seems to point the way towards his groove of the 70s! Hank Mobley joins the group on tenor, Walter Booker is on bass, McCoy Tyner's on piano, and Freddie Waits is on drums – and the groove is tight and funky, with a mix of hard bop soloing and funkier Blue Note rhythm playing. Red burns throughout, especially on his own "Mustang", and on the cut "Dixie Lee". Other tracks include "Fly Little Bird Fly", "On The Trail", and "I'm So Excited By You". LP, Vinyl record album

The music is rich and bold right from the start – and clearly, the leader is much more of a mutual participant in the proceedings than the boss – as the horns alone have these individual flourishes and power as a whole that's really amazing – a sense of color and richness that's very distinct from Orrin's piano, and which maybe gets even more presence in the mix. Players include Todd Bashore, Immanuel Wilkins, and Caleb Wheeler Curtis on alto saxes; Josh Lawrence, Sean Jones, and Thomas Marriott on trumpets; David Gibson, Reggie Watkins, and Stafford Hunter on trombones; Troy Roberts on tenor; Stacy Dillard on soprano; Luques Curtis and Madison Rast on bass; Jason Brown and Mark Whitfield Jr on drums; and Evans on piano. A few tracks feature slight vocal contributions – and titles include "That Too", "A Time For Love", "Proclaim Liberty", "Tough Love", and "I'm So Glad I Got To Know You". CD

✨✧ Henry ManciniHawaiians ... LP
United Artists, 1970. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A dramatic score by Mancini – but a really nice one, thanks to lots of exotic percussion touches – often played by Emil Richards! Overall, the record's kind of a late 60s take on the exotica of Les Baxter's earlier Capitol recordings – with lots of dreamy tunes that conjure up the feel of the south seas and the east. Titles include "Music For A Japanese Bath", "Quiet Thoughts", "Molakai", "The Streets Of Chinatown", and "Auntie's Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jack McDuffMoon Rappin' ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible record – the kind of album that no fan of funky jazz should be without! This album is far and away one of the greatest ever cut by Brother Jack McDuff – and it's a baroquely complicated batch of funky jazz cuts that's still light years ahead of any other record! The tracks are much longer than you'll find on Jack's other work – and the group plays these lines that are laidback and trippy, yet which still have a tremendous amount of funk in them. Guitar sets the tone, spacing out over the drums of the great Joe Dukes; electric bass rumbles at all the low, dark spots; flute and tenor sax cut some sharp edges in the void; and the organ of Brother Jack comes in over the top, and soars with cosmic lines of sound! The album includes the monster cut "Oblighetto", sampled by Tribe Called Quest years back – plus other amazing groovers, like "Flat Backin", "Moon Rappin", and "Loose Foot". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing – nice and clean overall. Cover has a cut corner, and some light wear – but is nice too.)

✨✧ Marisa MonteUniverso Ao Meu Redor ... CD
EMI, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real departure for Marisa Monte – an album of samba tunes done in mostly traditional modes! The style here is often simple and classic – bits of guitar, percussion, cavaquinho, and slight use of keyboards to warm things up a bit – but mostly in a way that allows for the strongest focus on Marisa's vocals, and only a hint of the playfully modern touches of some of her other work. Guest stars include David Byrne, Paulinho Da Viola, Daniel Jobim, and others – but the real focus here is on Marisa, on titles that include "Universo Ao Meu Redor", "Statue Of Liberty", "Tres Letrinhas", "Perdoa Meu Amor", "Cantinho Escondido", "Vai Saber", "Para Mais Ninguem", and "Quatro Paredes".

✨✧ Diana RossLast Time I Saw Him ... LP
Motown, 1973. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fully mature work from Diana Ross – a set that really breaks free from the styles of her roots, and which has her emerging as a full-formed solo act on her own! There's a range of modes here that's quite surprising – strong, sophisticated ballads at the core, but also echoes of jazz, country, and even a bit of rock influences as well – showing Diana's increasing desire to broaden her musical reach, and coming off surprisingly well, without any of the mis-steps you might expect. Backings are often full, but usually focused too – arranged by Bob Gaudio, Gene Page, Tom Baird, Michael O'Martian, and others. Tracks include the funky favorite "I Heard A Love Song", plus "Stone Liberty", "No One's Gonna Be A Fool Forever", "Sleepin", "You", "Turn Around", and "Love Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Ravi ShankarImprovisations ... LP
World Pacific, 1962. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early American recording by Ravi Shankar – with some brief help from American jazz players! The bulk of the record features Ravi in a trio with tampura and tabla, performing long tunes similar to the ragas on his other albums from the time – but there's also a great track called "Fire Night" that features work by Louis Hayes, Bud Shank, Dennis Budimir, and Gary Peacock, all grooving on a bit of a modal jazz tip, making the track dance like a lively little MPS world jazz number! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Horace SilverTokyo Blues ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Horace Silver's greatest records ever – and the album that always makes us remember how many of his tunes are now etched in the memory of modern jazz! The album's got a slightly exotic bent that you might guess from the title – a furthering of the sound that Silver first started on his own after breaking with Art Blakey – a hint of more cosmic modes to come in soul jazz, yet still served up here with more of the punch you might expect from 60s Blue Note. The group is great – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet and Junior Cook on tenor – both super-tight at the start of the tunes, then breaking off into deeply personal territory on their solos. Rhythm is from Gene Taylor on bass and John Harris on drums – the latter a lesser-known compatriot of Silver, but one with a nicely loose sensibility that really adds a lot to the record. The writing is great – and titles include "Sayanara Blues", "Tokyo Blues", "Ah So", "Cherry Blossom", and "Too Much Sake". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty pressing, with Van Gelder/Stereo stamp. Cover has a small cut corner, but is otherwise great.)

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineEasy Walker ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album of subtle genius and stellar soul from the great Stanley Turrentine – an over looked quartet date that plays with the sharper edge of some of his earlier work for Blue Note, but which also shows the growing sense of color and tone he'd picked up during the 60s! The group here is great – a loose combo with McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – a rhythm team who still hold some of the soulful styles of Turrentine's more arranged albums, but who also really know how to respond to his groove too. Stan's got these confident solos that really show him becoming one of the true tenor masters of his time – with an especially great sense of space and timing – and titles include "Meat Wave", "Easy Walker", and a nice sweet version of "What the World Needs Now is Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing. Cover has some wear and aging, a small split in the top seam, and split bottom seam.)

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineSpoiler ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stanley Turrentine's no spoiler here – as his tenor sax soars out over the top of some sweet larger group arrangements from Duke Pearson – all awash in a great sense of soul, joy, and life! The album's got a much brighter feel than you might guess from the cover – a vibe that's a bit similar to Stan's classic Joyride album, but a bit more open and free – thanks to the lyrical touches of Pearson on the charts. Other players include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, James Spaulding on alto and flute, and Pepper Dadams on baritone sax – plus rhythm from McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw on electric bass, Mickey Roker on drums, and Joseph Rivera on percussion. As on some of the other Pearson dates from the time – particularly those with Donald Byrd – the use of electric bass really opens things up, by creating a subtle rhythmic pulse that really drives most numbers along. And also in the Pearson mode, the added players aren't really a horn section in the conventional way – just a group of like-minded, top-shelf jazz players who egg on the main soloist with a great sense of enthusiasm for the music! Titles include "La Fiesta", "The Magilla", "Sunny", "Maybe September", "You're Gonna Hear From Me", and "When The Sun Comes Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty stereo pressing. Cover has some light wear, but is nice overall.)

Kapp, 1969. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A weird, lost record that Wills cut for Kapp after the Liberty years and while his health was in decline – and another testament that the guy was incapable of sounding anything but completely great! Here Wills conducts a studio full of Nashville vets on a bunch of country standards and an oddball choice or two (Ray Charles' "Talkin' 'Bout You" for one) done up Western swing style. Other tracks include "Shame On you", "Milk Cow Blues", "Song Of The Wanderer", "Pan Handle Rag", the upteenth version of "San Antonio Rose" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousRevolution! – Teen Time In Corpus Christi 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare mid 60s rock from Corpus Christi, TX – from Brit Invasion styled sounds to nascent garage and psychedelia from a slew of great groups from what was clearly a healthy scene – one of the best rock comps yet from Cicadelic! The musicianship is incredible here – even though many of the players are likely still in their teens – with tight harmonies and skillful guitar, drums and bass playing. That said, it's raw and invigorating – even the tunes with early Beatles style harmonies have a raucous edge. 28 tracks in all: "It's So Hard (Previously Unreleased)", "Don't Give Up Hope" and more by Four More, "All Night Long", "A Taste Of The Same" and more by The Bad Seeds, "Passage To India (Previously Unreleased Mix)" by The Zakary Thaks, "Recognition", "Eveline Kaye" and more by The Liberty Bell, "Bad Side Of The Moon" and "Revolution" by Kubla Kahn, "I've Got Something On My Mind" by The Buckle and much more.

✨✧ Donald ByrdElectric Byrd ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Donald Byrd in a sweet electric mode – as you'd guess from the title! The set was recorded right before Byrd's legendary run with Larry Mizell in the early 70s – and the electric approach is a bit different here – a style that blends Byrd's wonderful trumpet lines with the larger ensemble mode Blue Note sometimes used in the late 60s, but with a spacey, stretched-out feel that's mighty nice! The album's somewhat similar to Byrd's Kofi set – but possibly a bit more open overall – and players here include Duke Pearson on electric piano, Jerry Dodgion on alto and sopranos ax, Frank Foster on tenor, Pepper Adams on baritone, Hermeto Pascoal on flute, Wally Richardson on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, Mickey Roker on drums, and Airto on percussion. Pearson produced, and probably arranged too – given a slight Brazilian undercurrent to the grooves – and titles include "Estavanico", "Essence", "The Dude", and "Xibaba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has some light wear, and back cover and label have a name in pen.)
