CoultrainAdventures Of Seymour Liberty (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Juju Dust/P-Vine (Japan), 2007. New Copy ... $22.99
Spacey soul from Coultrain – an up-and-coming singer from the St Louis scene, and one with a really unique sort of sound! The album's a wonderful debut effort – far more mature and complex than you might expect, with a really cosmic feel that's somewhere between 70s spacey soul and some of the more future-thinking work from the recent Detroit scene – yet all put together with a sense of timing and phrasing that's clearly Coultrain's own! Rhythms range from mellow and straightforward, to more complicated and angular – and Coultrain's voice is often great enough on its own, but sometimes sounds even better with a bit of flanged-out production. Titles include "Green", "Lilac Tree", "Screw", "Girl Of My Dreams", "Swimmin In The Stars", "Lost In Translation", "Playin Catch Up", "Self Pity", "Who R U", and "Endangered Species". CD

BuzzcocksDifferent Kind Of Tension ... CD
Liberty/Domino, 1979. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
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

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 (mono – red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.99
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! The album features Denny's classic original quartet – with Arthur Lyman on vibes and Augie Colon on bongos – and titles include "Stone God", "Jungle Flower", "Busy Port", "Lotus Land", and his hit recording of "Quiet Village". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono version on red vinyl – limited to 1000 copies!)

Martin DennyHypnotique (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000 – stereo pressing on blue vinyl!)

Martin DennyQuiet Village (green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1959. New Copy ... $20.99 24.99
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

Liberty, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A set that continues the country rock crossover sound of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – almost as if the group who preceded Poco and The Eagles were throwing their hat in the ring, and shining every bit as strongly in the 70s AOR limelight! You can definitely hear some of the charms of the earlier group here – and at some level, the vocals of Jeff Hanna are actually better without some of the wisecracking that could sometimes get in the way during the early years – a surprising shift for a group who always seemed to be a bit tongue-in-cheek, yet got more and more sincere as the years went on! Titles include "An American Dream", "Jas'moon", "Do You Feel The Way That I Do", "What's On Your Mind", "Happy Feet", and "Take Me Back". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob EnevoldsenSmorgasbord ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the few albums as a leader by Bob Enevoldsen – a tremendously capable player who's working here on trombone, tenor, and bass! Enevoldsen's talents graced a number of key 50s sessions on the LA scene, but his vision here is even more incredible – and really sparkles throughout, thanks to some inventive arrangements played by a combo that includes accordion and piano from Marty Paich, drums and vibes from Larry Bunker, and guitar from a young Howard Roberts. Bunker's vibes are especially great, and often ring out with a colder tone that underscores the modernism of some of the tunes – but which is also offset by some warmer notes from Enevoldsen. The set features a number of great original tunes, and titles include "Mr Know It All", "Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead", "John's Jumble", "You're In Love", "Bob's Boy", and "Swinger's Dream".

Freedom UnitySomething ... LP
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $54.99
A great bit of fusion from the start of the 70s – kind of a bridge between the late 60s "groovy" Japanese jazz, and some of the freer-thinking work to come! The group features excellent tenor from Takeru Muraoka, who plays with kind of a sharp edge that almost echoes more of the alto and soprano work of the generation – mixed with keyboards from Hiromasa Suzuki – who's plenty great on electric piano! Hiroshi Suzuki plays trombone, and the set's got some nice funky drums from Akira Ishikawa – who's always a treat. Overall, the set often has some of the same funky characteristics as some of the best late 60s electric jazz sets on Liberty Records in the US – on titles that include "Capricorn", "Something", "On A Sunny Day", "Some Other Night", and "Peaceful Planet". LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 44.99
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

Abbey LincolnAbbey Lincoln's Affair – A Story Of A Girl In Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Liberty/Capitol, 1956. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Julie LondonAbout The Blues ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $9.99
Hip early work from Julie London – with full jazz orchestra backing by Russ Garcia, whose soundscapes are perfect for that dreamy style of singing she was using at the time – a blend of the sublime and sad, floating along with almost effortless ease, but hiding a huge wellspring of emotion! The album's a great illustration of the subtle talents that Julie brought to the vocal scene of the 50s – and it's a nice contrast to some of the smaller group sides done by her at the time. Bobby Troup produced the set – and the album's got versions of his songs "Meaning Of The Blues" and "The Blues Is All I Ever Had", plus the tracks "Get Set For The Blues", "Bye Bye Blues", "Bouquet Of Blues", and "Invitation To The Blues".

One of Julie London's wildest albums – and one of her sexiest too! The record has Julie running through the calendar – singing a song a month, dedicated to January, February, March, and so on – a really great concept for a record like this, in ways that set the album apart from some of London's other classics of the time! The record's certainly one of her campier efforts – but in a great way – and it's further augmented by a great cover that has pinup images of Julie in a setting specific to each month – a cheesecake spectacular that's almost worth the price of admission alone. Titles include "June In January", "February Brings The Rain", "Melancholy March", "Memphis In June", and "Time For August". LP, Vinyl record album

Near-lost work from Julie London – a later album for Liberty, the kind of record that should have become a classic – had she not recorded so much at the time that they got buried in the rush of all her releases! Julie's working in a nice upbeat, swinging style – with some great big band arrangements from west coast maestro Gerald Wilson – who really brings new life into Julie's style with the set! The tunes are mostly familiar 60s numbers on the set, but Wilson's lively backings are plenty playful, and show us a side of Julie that we'd never heard before. Titles include "She's Just A Quiet Girl", "Summertime", "Watermelon Man", "Girl Talk", "I Bruise Easily", and "Won't Someone Please Belong To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A landmark album in 50s vocal jazz – spare, moody, and evocative tunes from Julie London – sung in a stripped-down setting that few other singers would dare at the time! The sound of the set is as sexy as the cover – intimate, personal, and breathily sung in a mode that comes across with a brashly adult presentation of the material. Backing only features Barney Kessel on guitar and Ray Leatherwood on bass – leaving Julie plenty of room to take over the record with her vocals – a real masterpiece of understatement, given the setting! Titles include her famous version of "Cry Me A River" – virtually THE version of the tune – plus "I Should Care", "Say It Isn't So", "Gone With The Wind", "Laura", and "Can't Help Loving That Man".

One of Julie London's strongest overall albums – a great session that features small group backings with a warm and intimate feel! There's less of the languid sadness of some of Julie's other records, and more of the dreamy floating style of singers like Chris Connor or June Christy on this one. The feeling of the album's great, and it shows that Julie was much more than a pop singer with sexy looks and a smoky finish – although we're happy to hear that on here too! Titles include "Let There Be Love", "Goodbye", "You've Changed", "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To", "Lonesome Road", "They Didn't Believe Me", and "The Thrill Is Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

A record that has Julie London already hitting that great "Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast" mode of later years – the adult, informed approach that showed that the teasing nude of the 50s had turned into a pleasing woman of the 60s – capable of frank presentation of material and assumption of desire that other singers often still just toyed with. Peter King handles the arrangements, and mixes soft strings with lighter modes to really flesh out Julie's simple but effective delivery of the tunes. Titles include "Love On The Rocks", "Where Did The Gentleman Go", "What's New", "How Did He Look", "The End Of A Love Affair", and "Where Are You". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy's at his best here, and although the band's not credited, it clearly features some great west coast hornmen – who get these nice little licks in, almost adding in their own voice alongside Julie's! Titles include "Baby Come Home", "Get On The Right Track", "Tain't What You Do", "Everyday", "Yes Indeed", "Send For Me", and "Cheatin On Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Money, minks, and a diamond tiara – whatever Julie wants, it's pretty well laid out in the album's cover image! The set's a slinky swinger that definitely follows in the spirit of the title track "Whatever Lola Wants" – that postwar vampy sort of groove that Peggy Lee was doing so well over at Capitol – a natural fit here for Julie London, given the naturally sensuous quality of her singing! The backings have just the right sort of sexy bounce for the themes – and London sexes it up even more than usual, really adding some great life to tunes that include "Love For Sale", "Why Don't You Do Right", "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", "Take Back Your Mink", "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend", and "An Occasional Man".

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"!

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".

The album includes his big hit, plus a lot of other tracks that were made famous by others who went before Gene with a similar style (like Tommy Edwards and Roy Hamilton).

Right from the start, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band were wonderful in the studio – but as this album will show, they were even more vibrant in a live setting – a format that would give them some of their best records over the years! This set has the group working at a level that's both technically sharp and whimsically goofy – completely respectful of their roots, but also with enough perspective on their career to never take themselves too seriously – a charm that would only deepen as the years moved on. The instrumentation is wonderful – at a level that almost puts these guys in heady country/roots rock territory of groups like Dillard & Clark or Flying Burrito Brothers – but with an approach that's definitely NGDB all the way through. Titles include "Fat Boys Can Make It In Santa Monica", "Candy Man", "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", "Crazy Words Crazy Tunes", "Buy For Me The Rain", and "Rock Me Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

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!

Lots of percussion – and loud! Slatkin's normally a bit sleepy, but this record's filled with drums and chimes and vibes and loads of exotic percussion instruments – and swings with a groove that's in the best of the Liberty easy styles from the late 50s. Titles include "Night Train", "Caravan", "Blue Tango", "Opus 1", and "The Happy Hobo". The tracks are less originals than they are oddly-worked (or worked-over) versions of more familiar tunes.

Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums of Latin Jazz ever recorded on the west coast during the 50s – and a landmark session from Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo! The album well earns its "fever" claim – as the set smokes from the very first note – Jack's bongos calling the pace, moving fast and furiously to pull in a jazzy mix of tenor, trumpet, flute, and piano – the latter of which is played by the great Eddie Cano! The whole thing's wonderful – as compelling musically as the great image on the front cover, and without any of the kitsch, tricks, or gimmicks that could sometimes hurt a session like this. No-nonsense Latin jazz all the way through – and filled with great tracks that include "Hornacopia", "Latin Fever", "Bajo Numero Uno", "Sax Con Ritmo", "Drum a Mania", and "Cumbanchero".

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

This album's still got the group working in a straight soul jazz mode – and the original trio's been expanded to include Fats Theus on tenor and Leon Flowers on trumpet. Titles include "Next Time You See Me", "Red Wine", "Love For Sale", "Don't Stop", "Unit Seven", and a groovy version of "Sunny". LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty, 1960. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Around Midnight's just about the best time to listen to Julie London – especially given her sultry late nite style of singing! This album's one that definitely follows in that mode – setting Julie's vocals to backings by Dick Reynolds – a bit fuller than some of her earliest Liberty albums, but still quite moody, and very much in the best spirit of the album's songs of adult love and loss. The song choices are especially great too – with some key mid-century classics that include "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning", "Lush Life", "Lonely Night In Paris", "Something Cool", and "You & The Night & The Music". All that – and a great cover that has Julie posing as the hands of a clock! LP, Vinyl record album

Titles include "My Heart Reminds Me", "Love Letters", "Broken Hearted Melody", "Fascination", "Never On Sunday", "Hey There", "I Miss You So", and "Come On-A My House". LP, Vinyl record album

Julie London couldn't look sexier on the cover – reclining in bed, on the telephone, breast falling out of her nightgown, 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

✨✧ Henry ManciniVersatile Henry Mancini (aka Driftwood & Dreams) ... LP
Liberty, 1957. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever album from Henry Mancini – and a wonderfully spooky set! The style here is quite different than most of Hank's better-known film work and instrumental hits – as the record is very moody and laidback – cut with a slow-moving, dreamy sort of darkness that's really compelling! The instrumentation is very unusual – a mix of organ, accordion, and guitar by Laurindo Almeida – all stepped gently along with some spare electric bass bits by Bob Bain, who really knows how to preserve a sense of space in the set. There's a bit of wordless vocals from the lovely Lulu Jean Norman – almost in modes that would show up later in Italian soundtracks – and although there's a bit of an exotica feel to the record, it's very slight, given the lack of any percussion or drums – and instead comes off with a very spooky dream-like quality. Titles include "Bali Hai", "Poinciana", "The Whispering Sea", "Ebb Tide", and "The Naked Sea". LP, Vinyl record album

A wild little record from this little-known American singer – a set recorded in Germany at the end of the 60s, with a compelling mix of jazz, bossa, psychedelic, and funky touches! Don's got this weird sort of raspy vocal approach a times – a rumbling style of putting over a lyric that's a nice contrast to the sweeter blend of jazz and Latin instrumentation used in the backdrop! The set features some wonderful work from key talents on the German groove scene at the time – including guitar from Sigi Schwab, and arrangements from Ingfried Hoffmann – both of whom contributed a number of original tunes to the set! Titles include "Danza", "Titicaca", "Ananas", "Inca Uyu", "Blue Bossa", "Duerme Negrito", "Sugar Cane", and "Charangito". Also features 2 bonus cuts – "On The Road Again" and "In My Fantasy". CD

A lovely lost gem! The tenor sax of Bill Perkins graced a rare few jazz sides of the 50s, and it sounds equally great on this mid 60s bossa session – one that features Bill soloing over the top of arrangements by Bob Florence that mix together small combo grooving and some larger string backings. The set's not the hardest hitting in the world, but Bill's tone is wonderfully honest – right up there with Getz's best interpretation of similar material, and a refreshing delight in a world of soundalike bossa pop albums. Titles include "Tres Palabras", "Joao", "Little Boat", "Baia", "Pensativa", "Summer Festival", and "Obscurity". LP, Vinyl record album

This one captures a strong side of Solal's playing – and features him in a trio with Guy Pederson's bass. Titles include "Dermaplastic", "Nos Smoking", "Special Club", and "Gavotte A Gaveau".

Liberty/Jackpot, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the strangest albums ever from exotica maestro Martin Denny – and one of the coolest as well! The strength of the album is already broadcast by the title – as Denny plays plenty of moog in the record, mixed with his own usual flair for exotic rhythms – expanded slightly by arrangements from Clark Gassman, who really knows how to keep up the pace in a great way. The keyboards have lots of wild sounds, with chirps and flutters that would make Perry & Kingsley proud – and the backing's a bit funkier than usual, with some nice electric basslines to keep the groove coming. Includes a great version of Baden Powell's "Canto De Ossanha", a remake of "Quiet Village", a moody take on "Midnight Cowboy", and a jazzy moogy version of "Cast Your Fate To The Wind".

✨✧ Paul NeroSoul Party – 28 Sensational Soul Hits ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A record with a hokey cover and an unassuming title – but a wicked little set that's filled with funky soul throughout! Paul Nero's a German artist, and he's working here in a style that was common to Euro recordings of the time – a medley-heavy approach that stacked together a few already-short pop covers into a 2 or 3 minute combo played with plenty of energy. In the hands of most others, the style was often flat – but here Nero really makes it move mightily – often with a good undercurrent of funk on the bottom, and a great sense of soul! Highlights include the killer break track "This Is Soul/Soul Finger/Soul Man" – plus "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa/Mr Pitiful/Mustang Sally", "Shake/Stagger Lee/Land Of 1000 Dances", "Tribute To Otis Redding/You Keep Me Running Away", and "Hold On I'm Coming/Soul Reaction/Tramp".

The backings have the Pell voices in the background on most tunes – not as groovy as on later work, but still in a nice mode that has them singing dreamily while Dave takes care of the reall jazz component. And the jazz approach is stronger than you might think, thanks to arrangements by Bob Florence. LP, Vinyl record album

Backings are by Hal Johnson – an unsung hero in the Les Baxter/Martin Denny mode – and he's especially strong on percussive touches to evoke an imagined East, which is then balanced with Sondi's vocals – in English, but accented strongly with her Thai roots! And in keeping with the lack of sensitivity of the times, the songs are a mix of pan-Asian themes – with titles that include "China Nights", "Sondi", "Bali Hai", "Siamese Cat Song", "Buffalo Song", "Burma Train", "Sondi", and "Budda Knows".

The group's clearly got some key west coast hornmen in the lineup – as some points feature some standout sax or trumpet bits that really help flavor the tunes – taking them way past Julie's usual sensual style, and offering up a great second element that really makes the record worth checking out! The tunes come across in ways you'd hardly expect – and titles include "Row Row Row", "By The Beautiful Sea", "Comin Thru The Rye", "After The Ball", "Cuddle Up A Little Closer", and "Old Folks At Home".

Great early work from Kay Starr – a singer who cut plenty of pop in the 50s, but who's working in much jazzier territory on this material from the mid 40s! The sides were all originally issued as 78rpm singles, and later put together as the full LP pictured on the cover – and Starr's trademark tone is slightly subdued here, and the overall approach is a bit bluesier overall. Kay's nicely expressive, but never goes too far over the top – and the backings are usually small combo and swinging, with some slight trad elements in the instrumentation. Titles include "I'm Confessin", "Sweet Lorraine", "All Of Me", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "I Cried For You", and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah BandKeynsham ... LP
Imperial, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
Some of the most tuneful moments on record from the Bonzo Dog Band – a set that's got some really great songs, but which still allows some space for gags and jokes as well! After three previous albums together, even with a shifting lineup, the group have obviously gotten their groove down a bit more – and the result is some focused little numbers that stand out strongly, and which almost show a more sensitive and (dare we say it!) serious side of the group. All the older sense of dada-inspired play is still at the core, though – and even though there's less radio parodies or audio experiments, the tuneful tracks still have some trippy, psyche-styled moments. Titles include "Tent", "You Done My Brain In", "Keynsham", "Quiet Talks & Summer Walks", "Look At Me I'm Wonderful", "What Do You Do", "Noises For The Leg", and "Busted". LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdNew Perspective ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A classic album that mixes trumpet and voices in a swirling soulful sound that worked very well for Byrd's career! Byrd's sparkling trumpet fronts a tight septet that includes Hank Mobley, Herbie Hancock, and Kenny Burrell – and which is backed by arrangements by Coleridge Perkinson and Duke Pearson. The sound is beautiful and spiritual, with a sound that mixes Blue Note hardbop with a style that would later show up on labels like Strata East, or in the experiments of Max Roach and Billy Harper. The tracks are long and moody, and the vocal group never gets in the way, but instead backs Byrd in a way that lets him hit new heights, and which gives him a stronger sense of voice. Includes the classic "Christo Redentor", plus "Chant", "The Black Disciple", and "Elijah". LP, Vinyl record album

John CarpenterEscape From New York (expanded 180 gram colored vinyl pressing – with 12-page booklet) ... LP
Waxwork, 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... About November 6, 2020
A seminal soundtrack from the legendary John Carpenter – one of those key records that showed the world that he was as great of a composer as he was a director! The album's a Carpenter-esque masterpiece – lots of cool, spare electronics – used in ways that make the whole movie a whole lot scarier than even the images on the screen – a quality you'll definitely appreciate here as you listen to the album on its own! Some of the best sounds are the most subtle – spare use of basslines and keyboards that almost make you feel as if Moebius and Rodelius have gone over to the dark side – and these are mixed with just a few more "action" based moments. Titles include "Up The Wall/Air Force 1", "Everyone's Coming To New York", "The Duke Arrives/The Barricade", "Back To The Pod/The Crazies Come Out", "Police State/Romero & The President", and "Chase Across The 69th Street Bridge".

The style's a bit rougher than later years, but in a good way – one that shows that Miles' ideas were not accidents, or studio magic, but the brilliant expressions of a musician who was years ahead of his time.

Richard Groove HolmesGroove ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An early cooker from Richard Groove Holmes – and one of the most important Hammond jazz sets to come out of the west coast at the time! At a point when most folks think the east has a lock on the instrument, Groove bursts forth here with a great hard-edged sound – proof that the LA scene didn't just go for cool jazz and the occasional hardbop date – and the start of a great run of records that would have Holmes sounding great all through the 60s! The lineup is nicely unusual, too – with guitar from Chicagoan George Freeman, then on the west coast – and a key part of Holmes' group for years – and trombone from the excellent Lawrence Tricky Lofton, a player who rarely recorded, but made some great sides with Carmell Jones. The group also features Les McCann on piano, a nice combo with the organ – plus Ben Webster on tenor and Ron Jefferson on drums. Titles include "Good Groove", "That Healin' Feelin'", "Them That's Got", and "Deep Purple". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo Liberty pressing.)

Blue Note, 1970. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A stunning early set as a leader from Elvin Jones – both a tremendous demonstration of the free energy he let loose after the passing of John Coltrane, and a set that's also still got some key Coltrane-esque elements! As with other Jones albums to follow, Elvin's got some key reedmen on hand – George Coleman on tenor, and Frank Foster on tenor, alto, and bass clarinet – both given plenty of room to run around with long solos on the open space of the record – yet without ever blowing off their heads as much as some of the younger players who'd work with Jones. There's no piano at all on the set – just the rock-slid bass of Wilbur Little, and additional congas from Candido next to Elvin's drums. The tracks have a haunting quality that mixes modal grooving with spare moments, and titles include "Simone", "5/4 Thing", "Shinjitu", and a nice version of "Yesterdays". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo Liberty pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has light ringwear and a cut corner.)

✨✧ Elvin JonesGenesis ... LP
Blue Note, 1971. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Elvin Jones rose to fame in the company of one of the greatest saxophone players ever – the mighty John Coltrane – and his post-Coltrane work like this really continues a keen respect for the role of the reeds in jazz – and really does a lot to push it forward as well! There's a compelling edge to the record that's light years from Elvin's work with Coltrane – a completely new sensibility that can be spacious one minute, extremely powerful the next – and quite possibly realized to its fullest potential here, thanks to the mindblowing contributions of Dave Liebman on tenor and soprano sax, Frank Foster on tenor and flute, and Joe Farrell on alto and soprano sax. All three players work together on each track – and all shift reeds throughout the session – opening up majestically with inspiration from Elvin's drums, and some wonderful work from Gene Perla on bass. The sound is beyond easy categorization or simple style – and the record's filled with wonderful titles that include "PP Phoenix", "For All The Other Times", "Three Card Monty", and "Cecilia Is Love".

✨✧ Elvin JonesPoly-Currents ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The title's a great one for this post-Coltrane cooker from Elvin Jones – as the set really has Elvin exploring some really fresh currents in jazz, with a range of complicated rhythms that really pull the whole session along strongly! Rhythm is really set free on the record – as Elvin works to unlock some tremendous new possibilities in jazz, but all at a level that's quite different than his previous work with his famous leader – a rich tapestry of new spiritual expression that's carried off wonderfully by Joe Farrell on flute, tenor, and English horn – plus George Coleman on tenor, Pepper Adams on baritone, and a bit more flute from Fred Tompkins. There's no piano on the album at all – and Wilbur Little plays some tremendous bass, with some occasional conga work from Candido as well. Titles are all originals by group members – or Mrs Jones – and titles include "Whew", "Agenda", "Agappe Love", "Mr Jones", and "Yes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty stereo pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has a cut corner and light wear near the opening.)
