Woody HermanComplete Woody Herman Decca, Mars, & MGM Sessions 1943 to 1954 (7CD set) ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, 1940s/Early 50s. New Copy 7CD ... $118.99 119.00
It's hard to put the genius of Woody Herman in words – but that's something we don't have to do, thankfully, as this massive box set provides a wonderful illustration of everything that made Woody such a standout in his generation! Sure, Herman was a bandleader with a clarinet – but that's where any similarity to other large groups stops – as Woody was always open to new ideas, including influences from bebop, modern jazz, R&B, jump blues, and other styles – and was always changing up the way he approached his music and arrangements, not just changing the lineup of his famous bands, but also breaking out into new recording possibilities too! This package captures Herman at three important parts of his career – early Decca Records 78rpm singles, which show all those modern edges that Herman created on the large ensemble jazz scene, thanks to key modern players; his huge amount of music for MGM, where Herman also really opened up as an overall entertainer, and was able to take on just about any jazz style with effortless ease, and become quite a singer as well; and his rare 50s material for his own self-run Mars label, an imprint for 78rpm singles that linked Woody much more with the growing R&B indies of the time. And as much as we love Mosaic for LP-related box sets, we often feel they do an even more crucial job with sides from this 78rpm era – proving great sound, missing notes, and a sense of completeness that you don't even get if you're a collector of the original format. 7CD box has the usual great Mosaic presentation and copious notes – and a total of 141 tracks in all.

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsLove Is ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
A fantastic double-length set from The Animals – recorded in LA in the late 60s, and with plenty of great Sunset Strip influences in the mix! The band here is different than before – with Zoot Money handling both organ and piano, plus a bit of vocals, and Andy Summers joining in on guitar – and production is by the group itself, who shake off some of the trippier styles of previous records, and almost go for a "live in studio" sort of sound! There's a confluence of styles here that's really great – some of the blues of the group's roots, bits of Eric Burdon's growing love of soul, and some fuzzier touches as well. Some tracks are quite long jams, and titles include "Gemini", "Madman", "As The Years Go Passing By", "To Love Somebody", and "I'm An Animal". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sebastian CabotSebastian Cabot, Actor/Bob Dylan, Poet – A Dramatic Reading With Music ... LP
MGM, 1967. Sealed ... $16.99
One of the strangest albums to come out of the late 60s spoken word record boom – a collection of Bob Dylan tunes, read with a heavy English accent by actor Sebastian Cabot! Cabot's probably best known for his roles in the shows Checkmate and Family Affair – and he uses that familiar growly voice to great effect here on Dylan's tunes – spitting them out with a slightly bitter quality that's a fair bit different than Bob's original versions, but still very much in the same spirit! The backings are relatively spare – bits of strings, guitar, and other instrumentation – all handled by Irving Spice – and tunes include "It Ain't Me Babe", "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right", "Like A Rolling Stone", and "Blowin In The Wind". One of the best examples of "establishment hip" we can think of – and it's records like this that took more steam out of the left than Barry Goldwater ever did! LP, Vinyl record album

CowsillsCaptain Sad & His Ship Of Fools ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
One of the coolest albums from The Cowsills – that tremendous family pop act from the 60s, hitting some headier territory here than on earlier albums! There's a sense of darkness to some of the tracks that you might not have heard from the group before – kind of an eerie quality lurking in the background of the poppy numbers, with the same kind of unsettling feel you'd get from the album's cover – as if they'd been hanging around hippies, but weren't entirely sure how to handle the influence – the same weird world that Jack Wild must have been living in while working with Sid & Marty Croft. This offbeat edge really makes the record great – way more than simple pop, but still with all the Cowsills charm we know from before – and most of the best tunes here are original Cowsills compositions too. Titles include "Ask The Children", "Indian Lake", "Captain Sad & His Ship Of Fools", "Can't Measure The Cost Of A Woman Lost", "Painting The Day", and "Meet Me At The Wishing Well".

The group behind one of the coolest novelty tunes of the 70s – the excellent "Chick A Boom (Don't Ya Jes Love It)" – one of those cuts that showed up everywhere at the time, but didn't exactly put the band on the map! That great cut leads off the set – and other numbers follow in a similar space – weird territory between pop psyche and early glam – with fuzz on the edges of the grooves on most moments, and flanged-out vocal production. Titles include "Johnny Do It Faster", "Migrane Headache", "5 Card Stud", "Chick A Boom", "March Of The White Corpuscles", and "Diggin On Mrs Jones". LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria GaynorExperience Gloria Gaynor ... LP
MGM, 1975. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Warmly gliding soul from Gloria Gaynor – a great little set that has none of the cliches that sometimes mar our memory of Gloria's work, awash in tight arrangements that mix equal part disco and mainstream soul! Much of the record is upbeat, but never over the top – and even the longer tracks have a hook-heavy simplicity that's really great – a bit like the move into club that some of the Motown artists were also making at the time. Meco handled some of the production and arrangements, and titles include Casanova Brown", "(If You Want It) Do It Yourself", "How High The Moon", "The Prettiest Face I've Ever Seen", "What'll I Do", "Tell Me How", "I'm Still Yours", and "Walk On By".

Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/BBR (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $12.99
The start of a very successful run for Gloria Gaynor – a seminal bit of crossover 70s soul – one that perfectly linked the dancefloor with the airwaves, and managed to take on more than a few living rooms as well! Gloria's not entirely in full blown disco-diva mode yet, and works here with a soaring Philly-styled groove – of the sort you'd hear with groups like First Choice or Three Degrees – almost grounded a bit in earlier female soul, especially in the vocals and overall changes in the grooves – yet sparkled up plenty with some fuller, richer 70s arrangements. Those are handled by Norman Harris and Harold Wheeler – who do plenty to warm up the production by Meco – and the set includes the stunning 6 minute version of Gloria's big hit "Never Can Say Goodbye", plus "All I Need Is Your Sweet Lovin", "We Belong Together", "Real Good People", "Honey Bee", and "Reach Out I'll Be There". CD features lots of bonus tracks, too – "Honeybee (Columbia single version)", "Honey Bee (MGM single version)", "All It Took Boy Was Losing You", "Come Tonight", "Never Can Say Goodbye (single version)", "Reach Out I'll Be There (single version)", and "We Just Can't Make It".

An excellent one from Getz – recorded here as the lead soloist over backings composed by Eddie Sauter, designed to accompany the film Mickey One, an early directorial effort from Arthur Penn (and starring Warren Beatty as well!) The score has a very edgey quality to it, and Getz's playing is superb – a clear contrast to his breathier bossa work of the same vintage, and proof that he was growing tremendously as a player at the time. Titles include "Where I Live", "The Creature Machine", "Morning Ecstasy", "As Long As I Live", "Mickey's Theme", and "On Stage". LP, Vinyl record album

Tompall GlaserAnother Log On The Fire – Hilbilly Central 2 (Tompall Sings The Songs Of Shel Silverstein/Great Tompall & His Outlaw Band/bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Two seminal 70s albums from Tompall Glaser – both recorded during the time he was one of the real outlaws working on the Nashville scene! On Sings The Songs Of Shel Silverstein, Tompall takes a page from the book of Bobby Bare – singing songs penned by the always-witty Shel, who'd made a surprising move to country music with a hit for Johnny Cash, which was followed by a really great run of material that helped both transform the Nashville sound, and also give it a different sort of sense of humor. Unlike Bare and some of Shel's other 70s interpreters, Glaser has this naturally blue-tinged sort of vocal sound – which really brings a different spirit to the music – maybe echoing some of the more melancholy qualities of tunes that include "I Ain't Lookin For Answers Anymore", "Musical Chairs", "Grab A Hold", "Echoes", "Old New Orleans Custom", "If I'm There", and "Put Another Log On The Fire". The Great Tompall is a seminal set from Tompall Glaser – one that has him rising up from the Nashville underground, to hit the same sort of territory that was making Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings huge at the time! Like both of those singers, Glaser had spent years trying to make music work under other folks' directions – and had really broken off and found his own sort of path, with a spirit that really comes through here – on a record that definitely sounds unlike anyone else at the time. Tracks include new versions of some country classics, a few from the pen of Shel Silverstein, and a few more surprises along the way. Titles include "When It's Gone It's Gone Girl", "The Hunger", "West Canturbury Subdivision Blues", "I Can't Remember", "Time Changes Everything", and "If I'd Only Come & Gone". CD also features the bonus tracks from a single – "Loving You Again" and "T For Texas". CD

Dave Grusin/Teddy RandazzoGirl From UNCLE ... LP
MGM, 1966. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the greatest spy soundtracks of the 60s – a very groovy batch of tracks written for Stefanie Powers' brief TV show, The Girl From UNCLE! The music here is better than the male version of the UNCLE franchise – hip 60s spy themes, done in a groovy style for the television audience – often a cool blend of swirling strings, jazzy orchestrations, and some very hip rhythms! Dave Grusin penned the music, and Teddy Randazzo arranged – bringing his 60s soul background into the work in a really great way – emphasizing the grooves even more than on other records of this nature, in a way that's made the set very sought after in the crate-digging scene. There's plenty of nice 60s elements – keyboards, wordless vocals, funky flute, and other hip effects – and titles include "Movin On", "Out Of The Frying Pan", "The Girl From UNCLE", "Sneaky Search", "The Countess", and "Bomb Scare".

MGM/Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A great early run of records from the fantastic Osborne Brothers – a bluegrass duo who maybe had more to offer as a single act than some of their bluegrass contemporaries put together! These guys have an instrumental deftness that rivals the team of Flatt & Scruggs – especially on the many fast-moving tunes in the collection – yet they also manage to harmonize together in a way that captures the heartfelt vibe of the Louvins, while also bringing in that raspy edge of a Ralph Stanley or Jimmy Martin – all names that we feel that Osborne Brothers can stand next to proudly, even if they don't always get their due! This collection will hopefully change that – as it features 32 gems that include "Five Days Of Heaven", "Ruby Are You Mad", "Lost Highway", "You'll Never Know", "It's Just The Idea", "Give This Message To Your Heart", "I Love You Only", "Who Done It", "Down In The Willow Garden", "Della Mae", "Wild Mountain Honey", "At The First Fall Of Snow", "Blame Me", "There's A Woman Behind Every Man", and "If You Don't Somebody Else Will".

OvationsHaving a Party ... LP
MGM, 1973. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A slightly deeper vibe than previous work from The Ovations – but in a great way too! The set begins with the Sam Cooke remake of the title track, but after that things pick up a bit more – using more bass in the backings for a groove, and a bit more keyboards too – not exactly funky touches, but definitely a harder edge than before for The Ovations – all of which makes for a great contrast to the sweet soul vocals of lead singer Louis Williams! There's a few echoes of Hi Records at points, but never in the too-iconic style of Hi – and instead arranger Dan Greer really finds a way to carve out a unique space for the group. Titles include a number of Sam Cooke tributes – given that Williams was a big devotee – titles that include "You Send Me" and "A Change Is Gonna Come", in addition to the title track. But we dig the other titles even more – and they include "Your Love Is Like A Song To Me", "Born On A Back Street", "Touching Me", "Don't Look Back", and "I Can't Believe It's Over".

A pretty hip album of jazz vocal numbers by Pat Thomas – made even hipper by arrangements from Claus Ogerman and Lalo Schifrin! The style of the record's a bit like Lorez Alexandria's work from the same time – part jazz, part soul, and all-solid all the way through vocally – with a deeper sense of soul than most other singers of Pat's generation. Things get a bit flowery at times, but Pat's vocals are always strong – and really stretch out through the lush arrangements on the record in a way that's extremely captivating. Includes versions of "The Cliff Dwellers", "Baltimore Oriole", "Don't Wait Too Long", "Dreamy", "Detour Ahead", and "Stranger On The Shore". LP, Vinyl record album

Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. Used ... $3.99
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties".

Velvet UndergroundWhite Light/White Heat ... CD
MGM, 1968. Used ... $2.99
One of the most far-out, freaked-out albums ever from the Velvet Underground – easily the most experimental set the group ever recorded! The album's awash in really unusual sounds and styles – from the sonic blast of the title cut "White Light/White Heat", to the 17 minute garage/psych jam of "Sister Ray" to the very odd "The Gift" – which is a creepy story about cuckolding, told with voice and instrumentation split over different stereo channels! Other tunes offset the darkness with an eerie touch of sweet – and include "Here She Comes Now", "Lady Godiva's Operation", and "I Heard Her Call My Name". Arguably one of the Velvets' most influential moments – even if it's also one of their least commercially successful! CD

✨✧ War & Eric BurdonEric Burdon Declares War ... LP
MGM, 1970. Very Good+ ... $29.99
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals. We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook onto the rich talents of this LA combo – even though he really didn't know what to do with them on this record. Part of the album's an homage to Roland Kirk, part is an extended reworking of "Tobacco Road", and part is an overly-long bluesy passage called "Blues For Memphis Slim". Fortunately, the record also includes the monster groover "Spill The Wine", one of the first big crossover tracks to popularize the Chicano funk sound of LA – and a great little groover that still hooks us in today.

✨✧ Monty AlexanderTaste Of Freedom ... LP
MGM, 1970. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massively groovy work from Monty Alexander – thanks to some hip, soulful backings from the legendary Johnny Pate! The sound here is a lot more swinging than some of Alexander's trio albums – much more of a Verve-styled session with fuller backings behind a main soloist – in this case the mighty Monty on some very fluid piano! Pate's backings support Alexander wonderfully – dropping out a bit when his solos come in, then surging with soul when the grooves come up – all in a sound that really makes us re-appreciate Monty's talents. Titles include "Close To You", "Have You Tried To Forget", "Big Yellow Taxi", "Let It Be", "Out Of Towners", and "Taste of Freedom". LP, Vinyl record album

MGM/Verve, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ever wonder what happens when beatniks turn into hippies? They make albums like this one – a real treasure from the late 60s underground – and a set that showed the complete transformation of Allen Ginsberg at the time! The set's a real oddity – recorded after Ginsburg had hit new fame for his appearance at the Chicago 7 trial – but with a meditative quality that's very different than his more public presence as a yippie. The record features Ginsburg reading the works of William Blake and playing harmonium – while he receives instrumental backing by the likes of Don Cherry on trumpet, Bob Dorough on piano, and Elvin Jones on drums – usually in ways that are light, but still meaningful – and which really highlight Ginsburg's commitment to the project. Peter Orlovsky chimes in on a few tracks – and titles include "The Shepherd", "Little Black Boy", "London", "Ah Sun Flower", and "Laughing Song". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground (3rd LP) ... LP
MGM, 1969. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The incredible third album from The Velvet Underground – and maybe our favorite of all their albums together – even though this one is far less weird or experimental than the rest! After their initial foray with Nico, and their bombastic sonic experiments on White Light/White Heat, the VU hit this wonderfully subtle territory here – these really personal, moody songs that still have all the knowledge of the wilder sounds of previous records, but which take those farther reaches and bring them back to more focused songwriting – with results that are completely sublime! There's no side-long jams, nor any fuzzy freakouts – but instead, the album's filled with these wonderful songs that really show Lou Reed really honing his craft – able to touch on all the seamy edges of late 60s counterculture, without ever having to hit you over the head – and likewise, the band's instrumentation has this way of using all their wider knowledge of noise and sound in these really refined ways – at a level that opened the door for so many other generations to come. The result is a masterpiece all the way through – and every track is a landmark of dark genius – on titles that include "Pale Blue Eyes", "After Hours", "I'm Set Free", "That's The Story Of My Life", "Candy Says", "What Goes On", and "Jesus".

✨✧ War & Eric BurdonBlack Man's Burdon ... LP
Far Out/MGM, 1971. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great pairing of talents – the post-Animals Eric Burdon on vocals, and early grooves from Cali funk legends War – coming together here in a blend that still holds up beautifully after all these years! Burdon was already getting pretty soulful on the last few Animals albums on MGM – and he really advances that style here when working with War's great grooves – some of the grittiest, nastiest, most stretched out work of their career – especially on some of the album's nicely long tracks. There's some nice Latin currents to the music at times, and the group vocalize alongside Burdon at times – and titles include a long version of "Paint It Black", plus "Bare Back Ride", "Sun/Moon", "Pretty Colors", "Gun", "Nuts Seeds & Life", "They Can't Take Away Our Music", and "Spirit".

MGM, 1968. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Another gem from The Animals' overlooked late 60s years on MGM – a time when the group were easily making some of the most inventive music on the label! The styles here are even wider than before – definitely an attempt to showcase "every one of us" that made up the group – in a blend of spacey sounds, gentle folksy moments, and some of the rougher tones of previous MGM records. Many titles were written only by Burdon – a bit of a change from before – and showcase an increased use of acoustic guitar alongside his bleak vocals. Titles include "The Immigrant Lad", "Year Of The Guru", "Serenade To A Sweet Lady", "White Houses", "New York 1963/America 1968", and "Uppers & Downers". CD features a bonus single version of "White Houses". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Erroll GarnerNight At The Movies ... CD
MGM/Mack Avenue, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Erroll Garner takes on songs from the movies – but at a level that's way different than other 60s examples of cinematic jazz albums – and which strongly preserves the classic sound of the pianist at his best! Part of the difference is that the songs are all tunes from older movies – films of the 30s and 40s, not the 60s – but the set also doesn't try to "soundtrack" the jazz performance, as the group just features Garner's trio with Eddie Calhoun on bass and Kelly Martin on drums – one of the last recordings of this group. Erroll himself is a marvel on the piano – serving up rhythmic, soul-drenched readings of tunes that include "I'll Get By", "As Time Goes By", "You Made Me Love You", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Just A Gigolo", and "Stella By Starlight".

✨✧ Buck GriffinLet's Elope Baby ... CD
MGM/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Overlooked Texas genius from Buck Griffin – a singer who first recorded for the famous Lin label, then got a shot at the bigtime on MGM! Buck's maybe the epitome of a local vocal star – a singer who was on the radio daily, and who was able to absorb the best of the bigger early 50s acts – then sling things forth with a spirit that was all his own – this great mix of heartbreaking vocals and hard-edge twang – which worked equally well on the mellow cuts and the more upbeat numbers! There's some occasional rocking guitar in the mix, which only further emphasizes the strength of Buck's vocals – and although many of these tracks are later than the classic years, there's a strong hillbilly vibe on many of the numbers. Titles include "Go Stop Go", "Broken Heart With Alimony", "Stutterin Papa", "Girl In 1209", "Meadowlark Boogie", "Cochise", "Let's Elope Baby", "Next To Mine", "Lookin For The Green", "Twenty Six Steps", and "First Man To Stand On The Moon".

An amazing little record – not only a fab 60s soundtrack, but a rare non-Blue Note 60s album by Herbie Hancock! The set was recorded for the film Blow Up – an incredibly dark thriller by Michaelangelo Antonioni, set in swinging London of the 60s, which provided a very groovy backdrop for Herbie's score! The tunes get plenty groovy on this set – dancing out with a combination of fast rhythms, nice piano and organ, and some of the jazzy flourishes you'd expect from a Quincy Jones soundtrack of similar vintage. The Yardbirds also make an appearance on the cut "Stroll On" – which features in one of the best scenes in the film – and other Herbie Hancock tracks include "The Thief", "Verushka", "The Naked Camera", "Bring Down The Birds", "The Kiss", and "The Bed".

After directing the first Shaft film, and letting Isaac Hayes have such a big hit with the music, Parks decided to handle the music for this sequel himself – and scored the whole thing with just as much skill as Hayes! The music is conducted by Dick Hazard, and produced by jazzman Tom McIntosh – but all the scoring is done by Parks, and he stays very true to the funky vibe set up by Hayes. OC Smith sings the vocal theme follow-up – called "Blowin Your Mind", which has a very similar groove to "Shaft" – plus two other surprisingly nice numbers, the funky "Move On In" and the mellow "Don't Misunderstand". Side two features the stunning "Symphony for Shafted Souls", a 13 minute instrumental suite that has lots of groovy chase themes laid out by fast wah wah guitar and horn riffing!

✨✧ Phil WoodsPhil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine At The Montreux Jazz Festival ... CD
MGM/Verve, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the smartest moves Phil Woods ever made was to move to Paris in 1968 and pick up a European rhythm section that featured George Gruntz, Henri Texier, and Daniel Humair. At the time, the idea of a European rhythm section might have been considered suicide by some folks – but for Woods, it was a liberating move that allowed him to expand his sound tremendously. With the help of these three players – all loose modernists who still knew how to swing – Woods was able to craft some incredible tunes, long flowing numbers that featured his amazing tone stretching out in kind of a post-Coltrane sort of mode. This live set is one of the group's best recordings, and features extended versions of tracks that include "Capricci Cavaleschi", "I Remember Bird", "Ad Infinitum", and "Riot". CD

An unusual 60s album that tries to link piano legend Erroll Garner to the crowds on the college campuses of the time – but with a vibe that's very different than most of the modern jazz sets that were usually issued in a similar format! This set was recorded mostly at Purdue University, and has Garner playing in a mode that's completely classic, and completely on fire – romping through tunes with this amazing deftness, alongside help from bassist Eddie Calhoun and drummer Kelly Martin. As with most Garner albums of this time, the pianist could almost be solo – as Erroll's strength and vitality on the keys is amazing – and the piano sound really seems to lead the bass and drums – not the other way around. Titles include "Mambo Erroll", "Stardust", "These Foolish Things", "My Funny Valentine", "La Petite Mambo", and "In The Still Of The Night". CD

There's a great maturation in the music going on here – as some cuts show a love of pop-psych elements, which comes off in fuller backings that swirl strongly around the lyrics – while other tracks have a leaner quality and more acoustic elements, almost into the territory of Beau Brummels on Reprise, especially given the way the vocals come across. The whole thing's a 60s pop treasure – filled with great original tunes that include "Rainflowers", "Dolls In The Clock", "Only Child", "Sally (Life Story #3)", "Put Your Mind At Ease", and "Larry's Birthday Party".

A studio album, but one that really has Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt recreating some of the bold energy of their live shows – coming across with a vibe that's much more Prestige Records than Verve, thanks to the presence of the Don Patterson trio on the set! Backing is by Don on Hammond, Paul Weeden on guitar, and Billy James on drums – a nicely loose combo that really lets the tenorists stretch out and show their stuff. The cuts are mostly standard material – "John Brown's Body", "Walkin", "Long Ago And Far Away" – but the twin-tenor sound is great, and Patterson's free organ lines riff away nicely!

Verve, 1966. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A fantastic LP of beautiful modal tracks, played by one of the most underrated reed players ever, during the most fruitful time of his career. At this point, Amy's moved away from his bluesy Texas roots, and has discovered a freer Coltrane-esque sound that works beautifully with his spiritual, strident compositions. Although the record was pushed by Verve with the funkier track "Mustang" (also recorded by Donald Byrd), the record really sounds more like a Nathan Davis record, with a mix of tenor and soprano sax that is extremely spiritual. Tracks include "Mustang" (2 versions), "Shaker Heights", "Enojo", and "Old Devil Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
