✨✧ Dennis CoffeyOne Night At Moreys – 1968 ... CD
Omnivore, 1968. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
If there's one thing we know about funk legend Dennis Coffey, it's that we can never get enough of his early work – especially when he's working in his trio with the mighty Lyman Woodard on Hammond! The pair together are fantastic – and have this Detroit-bred version of jazz funk that's even grittier than anything coming out on Prestige Records in the 60s – a vibe that reflects the ties both musicians had to the local soul scene, and also hits at Coffey's great wave of records to come on Sussex in the 70s! But the groove here is even deeper and more open – captured live on long tracks that really take off – so that even if the trio is playing familiar songs, they come out completely unique in the hard-jamming style of the group. The mighty Melvin Davis is on drums – and tracks include very long takes on "Eleanor Rigby", "Cissy Strut", and the great Richard Evans' tune "Burning Spear" – plus "Groovin", "It's Your Thing/Union Station", "Big City Lights", "Mindbender", and "I'm A Midnight Mover" – all previously unreleased!

DupreesCo-Ed Albums – You Belong To Me/Have You Heard ... CD
Coed/Omnivore, Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Two rare albums from The Duprees – one of the sweetest-sounding vocal groups of the early 60s! First up is You Belong To Me – a great full-length set from The Duprees – a record that begins with their huge hit title single, but which quickly moves into a range of material that really showcases the depths of their harmony sound! These guys are a lot more soul-styled than most of their blue-eyed group contemporaries – and have an approach here that's especially nice on the mellower cuts – a bit like The Flamingos during their seminal years on End Records! The vocal interplay is great – rising up with plenty of warmth and feeling, over arrangements that are often very understated, and really let the harmonies dominate. Titles include "You Belong To Me", "Ginny", "Why Don't You Believe Me", "Let's Make Love Again", "I Wish I Could Believe You", and "Take Me As I Am". Next is Have You Heard – overlooked 60s material by The Duprees – a vocal group with chops that take them way past their few well-remembered hits! This second album showcases singer Joey Vann a bit more on the cover, and a bit more in the mix – as Joey handles leads on most tracks, with the others harmonizing behind him – still in the same well-crafted, soul-styled mode as before – but with a slightly different balance, given the spotlight on Vann! Titles include "So Little Time", "Have You Heard", "Yours", "It Isn't Fair", "Where Are You", "Love Eyes", "It's No Sin", and "I Gotta Tell Her Now". CD

Bobby HatfieldStay With Me – The Richard Perry Sessions ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1971. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A never-issued album from Bobby Hatfield – best known as one half of The Righteous Brothers, but also a great solo act on his own! The set's from a time when the Brothers had split, and Bobby was working out some different styles of his own – most famously a move to more roots-oriented work on a record for MGM, but also this great set of fuller pop produced by the young Richard Perry! There's a really great vibe to these tunes – lofty arrangements on one hand, the sort that set those magnificent Hatfield vocals in action – blended with a few more homey touches, which includes nice work from Al Kooper on piano, and saxes from Bobby Keys. The quality's like a great maturation of the later Righteous Brothers sound – with a solo singer, of course – and titles include "Stay With Me", "Oo Wee Baby I Love You", What Is Life", "In The Still Of The Night", "Baby Don't You Do It", and "Sour Milk Sea". Also includes two tracks that were issued as a single at the time. CD

Little RichardKing Of Rock & Roll (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Omnivore, 1971. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A much rootsier set than some of Little Richard's other work for Reprise Records – a record that almost goes back to the old days, but via the hipper styles of the early 70s! HB Barnum arranged and produced the set, but the groove is less funkier than some of Barnum's other work of the time – a bit more rockish in some of the rhythms and instrumentation, which is no surprise considering the title – with a nod back towards late 50s modes, but in that new-roots way that Warner was hitting with other artists of the period. Richard's vocals hold up very well in the setting – and apart from the original tunes "Green Power" and "King Of Rock & Roll", the album features versions of "Midnight Special", "Dancing In The Street", "Brown Sugar", and "Born On The Bayou". Includes 6 bonus tracks – "Open Up The Red Sea", "Still Miss Liza Jane", "In The Name (version 2)", "Why Don't You Love Me", and the instrumentals "Mississippi" and "Settin The Wods On Fire". CD

Little RichardRill Thing (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Omnivore, 1970. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A mindblowing set from Little Richard – a stunning comeback session from the start of the 70s – recorded at Muscle Shoals with a heavy funk component in the mix! Richard arranged and produced the record himself – and it's a beautiful illustration of his genius – hardly dimmed at this point in his career, and if anything, really redefined for a new generation – with some razor-sharp grooves that are perfect for his hard-wailing vocals! The title cut – "The Rill Thing" – is a monster 10 minute instrumental jam, with a heavy funk sound that you can't even begin to imagine – and the rest of the set is pretty amazing too, with tracks that include "Spreadin' Natta What's The Matter", "Freedom Blues", "Two Time Loser", "Somebody Saw You", "Lovesick Blues", and "Greenwood Mississippi". Includes four bonus tracks – "Shake A Hand", "I Saw Her Standing There (radio edit)", and two cool "radio spot" tracks! CD

Little RichardSecond Coming (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Omnivore, 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
Funky 70s Little Richard – very much in the spirit of his Rill Thing album, although a bit more polished! The album features production and arrangements from New Orleans soul legend Bumps Blackwell – who first handled Richard way back when – and the record's sort of divided half and half between tracks that have a 70s funky feel, and others that are going back for more of an older styled retro rocking groove – yet not nearly as much so as on Richard's previous Reprise album. Titles include "Nuki Suki", "The Prophet Of Peace", "Thomasine", "Second Line", and "It Ain't What You Do It's The Way How You Do It". Includes the bonus tracks "Money Is", "Do It To It", and single edits of "Mockingbird Sally" and "Money Is". CD

Harry NilssonLosst & Founnd (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Omnivore, Early 90s. New Copy ... $16.99 21.99
A collection of unreleased later work from the great Harry Nilsson – tracks that push the genius of his RCA material ever forward into the 90s, but without ever losing any of his charm or spirit! Van Dyke Parks helped out on some of these tracks, and the material definitely has that cut-above quality that always marked Nilsson as one of the standouts of his generation – and, if anything, the passage of time has brought even more feeling into his vocals, which come across with a surprisingly honest, earnest quality on most of the songs – even when the lyrics have the sharpness of his wit. Titles include "Yo Dodger Blue", "What Does A Woman See In A Man", "Lost & Found", "UCLA", "Woman Oh Woman", "Lullaby", "Listen The Snow Is Falling", and "Animal Farm". LP, Vinyl record album

Art PepperNeon Art Vol 1 ... CD
Omnivore/Widows Taste, 1981. Used ... $11.99
A very cool late live set from Art Pepper – working in a killer quartet setting! Neon Art Vol 1 features two side-long pieces, recorded in January of '81, at Parnell's in Seattle – part of an excellent archive series of Art Pepper's work, done by his widow. Side one features a really great, elongated take on Pepper's "Red Car" – which was a stand out number on The Trip LP a few years earlier. This particular trip is stretched out to nearly 17 minutes long – with bassist David Williams and drummer Carl Burnett laying down a rhythm that's actually got a bit of funk in it – but pianist Milcho Leviev nearly steals the show! Pepper waits in the wings early on, but steps out brilliantly on alto as the performance builds up steam – and you can hear the audience really getting into it. Incredible! The other side features an 18 minute take on Pepper's "Blues For Blanche" – and Art commands this one from the start – by improvising pretty nicely on his sax, without straying too far out – and the players get some spotlight action, too.

Art PepperNeon Art Vol 2 ... CD
Omnivore, 1981. Used ... $11.99
Rare work from Art Pepper – and some of his best material from later years, too – all packaged in a really unique little set! The brings together unreleased live gems from Pepper – all done with a great later group that features George Cables on piano, David Williams on bass, and Carl Burnett on drums – really cooking away here in material from a Japanese tour in 1981! Side one features the brilliant "Mambo Koyama" – a snakey groover with a bit of a Latin vibe – and wonderfully soulful work from both Pepper and Cables! "Over The Rainbow" is a great 14 minute take on the classic – performed at a level that really leaves Art lots of open room to solo in the middle, with a tone that's simply breathtaking! "Allen's Alley" completes the record – done here with a nice romping groove that draws a lot from the basslines from Williams. CD

✨✧ Art Pepper with Bill WatrousWest Coast Sessions Vol 4 – Bill Watrous (Funk N Fun – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1982. Used ... $9.99
The cover says Art Pepper, but the record's one of our favorite albums ever cut under the leadership of trombonist Bill Watrous – a set that was part of a Japanese-only series that brought together some of the best players on the west coast scene at the end of the 70s! Watrous is maybe not as well-associated with the older LA jazz world as some of his associates on the set – who include the great Art Pepper on alto sax and Russ Freeman on piano – both of whom really open up in compelling ways next to Bill's trombone – especially Pepper, as he often wasn't recording with such a horn on his own albums of the time. The rest of the combo features Bob Magnusson on bass and Carl Burnett on drums – and the easygoing vibe of the record really makes for some well-shaped, well-blown notes from Watrous. Titles include "Funny Blues", "P Town", "For Art's Sake", "Begin The Beguine", "Angel Eyes", and "Just Friends". CD also features two bonus alternate takes! CD

✨✧ Art Pepper with Lee KonitzWest Coast Sessions Vol 3 – Lee Konitz (High Jingo – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1982. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A mighty meeting of two modern alto giants – a set cut under the leadership of Lee Konitz, but which also features some great work from Art Pepper too! Both Pepper and Konitz were two of the most distinctive players to emerge in the 50s – both in the generation after Charlie Parker first set the horn on fire with his bebop creations – but both very individual, distinct players who took the music in fresh new directions. That distinctness really comes through here – as both Lee and Art blow together wonderfully, crossing lines and taking off on solos with a gentle swing that comes from the support of Michael Lang on piano, Bob Magnsusson on bass, and John Dentz on drums. Most tracks are very alto-heavy – in a great way – and the session was originally only ever issued in Japan, as part of the Atlas Records "West Coast Today" series. Titles include "Minor Blues In F", "Whims Of Chambers", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and "This Can't Be Love". CD features two bonus alternate takes, too! CD

✨✧ Art Pepper with Pete JollyWest Coast Sessions Vol 2 – Pete Jolly (Strike Up The Band/bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1980. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked showcase for the late alto genius of Art Pepper – who was the supposed leader of this date issued under the name of pianist Pete Jolly! Jolly's great, too – very much in the sharpest form of his earliest sides from the 50s and 60s – and the pair work here in a tight quartet with Bob Magnusson on bass, and Roy McCurdy on drums – on a record that's filled with brilliant solos from Pepper! Art's got the magnificently sharp, soulful sound of some of our favorite early albums here – but with some of the more open modes he discovered in the 70s, but not in the completely unbridled way of his Galaxy albums. The balance is wonderful – that crisp Pepper of the early years, given a soulful romp from Jolly's piano – on titles that include "YI Blues", "Night & Day", "Out Of Nowhere", and "You Go To My Head". CD features two alternate takes of "YI Blues". CD

Staple SingersUnlock Your Mind (with bonus track) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1978. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Darn nice work from The Staple Singers – a record that seems to take the leaner, meaner sound learned by the group during their soundtrack years, and turn it back towards the fuller, more righteous sound of the Stax years! The album was recorded at Muscle Shoals, with very solid production and instrumentation throughout – a top-shelf effort that shows that even at this later date, a group like The Staples can still get some good sounds out of the studio. A few tracks are a bit mis-stepped, especially when Mavis steps out a bit too strongly in the lead – but overall, there's plenty of nice surprises on the record – and tracks include "Chica Boom", "Don't Burn Me", "Handwriting On The Wall", "Mystery Train", "I Want You To Dance", "Love Being Your Fool", "Showdown", "Unlock Your Mind", and "Leave It All Up To Love". CD also features a bonus single edit of "Chica Boom". CD

Staple Singers/Curtis MayfieldLet's Do It Again (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1975. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
One of our favorite albums ever from The Staple Singers – and that's really saying a lot, as they cut a huge amount of really great records! The album's an unusual collaboration between the group and Curtis Mayfield – one that forges the great vocal styles they were developing at Stax Records with some of the hip soundtrack modes that Curtis had created for Superfly – a blend that's served up perfectly in the best style of Mayfield's legendary Curtom Records! The Staples sound maybe even more righteous in the setting – with great grooves that are hip and funky at times, deeply soulful at others – arranged by Gil Askey and Rich Tufo in the same manner as Curtis' work from the time. Includes the hit title cut "Let's Do It Again", plus other nice ones like "After Sex", "Chase", "Big Mac", and "Funky Love". CD also features bonus tracks – single edits of "After Sex", "New Orleans", and "Let's Do It Again". CD

Warner/Omnivore, 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
The Staple Singers pick up a great Chicago soul groove – with production by Eugene Record and arrangements by Tom Tom Washington – all in a sound that's almost as if they'd left Stax Records and started to record for Brunswick! The groove's every bit as soaring and joyous as Record and Washington crafted a few years before in the Chicago indie scene – with perhaps just a few more late 70s elements to round things out, including some tightly funky guitar bits and a few quick-stepping rhythms that nicely push the Staples towards the dancefloor! Titles include "Family Tree", "What You Doing Tonight", "I Honestly Love You", "See A Little Further", "Color Me Higher", "Let's Go To The Disco", and "Boogie For The Blues". CD features bonus single edits of "Let's Go To The Disco" and "I Honestly Love You". CD

Warner/Omnivore, 1976. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
The Staple Singers and Curtis Mayfield – working together here in a very Curtom groove! This great little set picks off where the group's work on the Let's Do It Again soundtrack left off – taking The Staples far past their Memphis sound of the Stax years, into a hipper, more adult kind of mode – one that has plenty of modern soul and light funk touches. Arrangements are by Curtom maestro Rich Tufo, and the album's got some very full backings that seem to urge the group's vocals on even more than ever. Titles include "Making Love", "Pass It On", "Love Me Love Me Love Me", "Sweeter Than The Sweet", "The Real Thing Inside Of Me", and "Precious Precious". CD also features bonus tracks – single edits of "Love Me Love Me Love Me" and "Sweeter Than The Sweet". CD

John StewartOld Forgotten Altars – The 1960s Demos ... CD
Omnivore, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Very early work from John Stewart – spare, stripped-down demo recordings done right before his groundbreaking albums on RCA – all served up in that special style that really made John a key bridge between folk and country at the end of the 60s! The music just features Stewart on vocals and guitar – and the earlier numbers maybe have a vocal approach that references some of the folk styles of the time – but as the music progresses, both the style and songs get more original – as all of the material is John's own. A few songs feature duets with Buffy Ford Stewart – and titles include "Lock All The Windows", "One More Chapter Is Gone", "Children Of The Morning", "Draft Age Today", "One Tiny Grain Of Sand", "Big Sur", "Mother Country", "July You're A Woman", and "Down The Highway You Go".

Adam WadeCo-Ed Albums – And Then Came Adam/Adam & Evening ... CD
Coed/Omnivore, Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Two rare albums from Adam Wade – both originally issued by the Co-Ed label in the 60s! First up is And Then Came Adam – great work from Adam Wade – a slightly overlooked singer of the 60s, and one who steps out here in a great mix of soul styles and fuller vocal modes! Wade often has the kind of mature sophistication that could rival Johnny Mathis – and a number of cuts here are certainly cut from a similar mode – but as with other work on the Coed Records label, there's a larger ear for the wider range of listeners in the period – which means that Wade also steps out as a smooth swinger, maybe kind of a precursor to the Marvin Gaye generation. Arrangements are handled by Fred Weismantel and Joe Lipman – and titles include "First Love", "Just In Time", "A Moment Of Madness", "Ruby", "Around The World", "I'm Wise", "Fascination", and "So In Love". Adam & Evening is the second great album from Adam Wade – a singer with a sound here that could easily rival Nat King Cole or Johnny Mathis, but who also gets a slightly deeper current of soul! Arrangements are full and rich – often with a bit of vocals behind Wade's lead – but the sophisticated charts never get in the way of the more personal touches, which really help the tunes sparkle with a nice sort of imagination, and occasional touches of jazz. Titles include "Gloria's Theme", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "My Reverie", "I Have Dreamed", "For You", and "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry". CD

Brian Wilson & Van Dyke ParksOrange Crate Art (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1995. New Copy 2CD ... $25.99
One of our favorite moments from the 90s comeback years of Brian Wilson – a really special collaboration with Van Dyke Parks, the unsung LA musical genius who'd helped Wilson make so much great music back in the 60s! The collaboration is great – and both artists really hit a high point they hadn't hit in years – with the kind of special, personal, slightly-fragile songs that Wilson could still do very convincingly at this point in his career – set up by Parks with great instrumentation, and use of harmonized vocals that nicely step in a sideways direction from a more typical Beach Boys approach. Titles include "Orange Crate Art", "My Jeanine", "Movies Is Magic", "This Town Goes Down At Sunset", "Hold Back Time", and "Palm Tree & Moon". 2CD version is overflowing with bonus material – the unissued songs "Rhapsody In Blue", "Love Is Here To Stay", and "What A Wonderful World" – and a full bonus CD of instrumentals from the album!

✨✧ Vince GuaraldiComplete Warner Brothers/Seven Arts Recordings (Oh Good Grief/Eclectic/Alma-Ville/bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1968/1969. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio of wonderful records – plus rare bonus tracks too! First up is the classic Oh Good Grief – one of the coolest, grooviest albums that pianist Vince Guaraldi ever recorded – a set that's got the same Peanuts theme as his earlier dates for Fantasy Records, but which also features some sweet electric touches that only make things even better than before! In addition to his warmly vamping piano, with all those lyrical touches we love so much, Vince is playing an electric harpsichord too – which makes for some very groovy moments – in a cool quartet that features guitar from Eddie Duran, bass from Stanley Gilbert, and drums from the great Carl Burnett! All tunes are Peanut-themed – the music that Guaraldi wrote for the TV specials – but they're sometimes taken at a looser style that's even jazzier overall – as you'll hear on the classic "Linus & Lucy", plus "Red Baron", "Peppermint Patty", "Great Pumpkin Waltz", and "Rain Rain Go Away". The Eclectic Vince Guaraldi nicely expands Vince's sound of earlier years – by taking his lyrical piano groove and adding in a bit of electric harpsichord – plus slightly larger arrangements that feature a bit of electric bass, guitar, and just the right light touches of strings. The resulting sound is wonderful – as deeply reflective as some of Vince's better-known work, but with some cool late 60s touches that really give the album a fresh kind of feel. And heck, Vince even sings on 2 Tim Hardin tracks – "Black Sheep Boy" and "Reason To Believe" – using a great raspy style of vocals that we didn't even know he had! Other titles include a great electric version of "The Beat Goes On", plus cool originals "Nobody Else", "Coffee and Doe-Nuts", and "Lucifer's Lady". Alma-Ville was cut during Vince's late 60s hipster phase – and it combines work on piano with a bit of electric playing, plus hip LA arrangements that include drums by Dom Um Romao, guitar by Herb Ellis, and added percussion by Rubens Bassini. Tracks are mostly originals – short groovers and sing-song numbers, a lot cooler than some of Vince's earlier work – all dancing along in a sweetly breezy groove that makes for a heck of a delightful little album! Titles include "Rio From The Air", "Cristo Redentor", "Uno Y Uno", "Detained In San Ysidro", "Jambos", "Alma Ville", and "The Masked Marvel". 2CD set features 4 bonus tracks – "Oh Happy Day", "The Sharecropper's Daughter", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose (take 15)", and 'The BEat Goes On (alt take 14)".

Amazing Art Pepper – work from a 1981 tour of Japan, all of it unreleased – and presented here in a package that sparkles alongside some of his best later albums! Side one is mindblowing – an album-side track that has Art stretching out in so many different ways – voicing these really creative lines on the tune "Make A List", as the rhythm section of George Cables on piano, David Williams on bass, and Carl Burnett on drums make these snapping grooves to keep the whole thing going. Side two features two slightly shorter numbers – "Arthur's Blues" and "Everything Happens To Me" – both wonderful examples of the genius that Pepper was expressing near the end of his life! All tracks previously unreleased, too. CD

The set's one of the excellent dates done by the Japanese Atlas label – and features Shelly at the head of an excellent group that includes Art Pepper on alto, Bob Cooper on tenor, Pete Jolly on piano, and Monty Budwig on bass – all artists who really shine in this setting, especially some of the musicians who weren't getting the chance to cut as many records like this! Pepper's even different than on his own records of the period – which is quite a lot, given how much he was caught on record in his final years – and titles include "Lover Come Back To Me", "These Foolish Things", "Just Friends", and "Hollywood Jam Blues". CD also features a bonus alternate take of "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You". CD

✨✧ Townes Van ZandtSunshine Boy – The Unheard Studio Sessions & Demos 1971 to 1972 (3LP Box Set) ... LP
Omnivore, 1971/1972. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful 3LP set of long buried Townes Van Zandt recordings from the early 70s – a period that you can easily argue was his peak – even though few people were buying his records at the time! You get a pretty solid representation of 2 sides of the Townes sound on this great compilation from Omnivore. Disc One features alternate studio versions of some of our favorite songs – a good deal of which were produced by Cowboy Jack Clement at his Nashville studio in 1972 – plus a handful that Townes recorded in LA a year earlier. These have a sound that are fleshed out enough instrumentally, but without the horns, strings and some of the other grander aspects of the officially released album versions in hopes of breaking Townes through to a larger audience at the time. Ironically, it's the rawness and intimacy that Townes fans are drawn to – and that's what you get here! The second disc features demos that mostly feature just Townes's voice and acoustic guitar – and it's achingly beautiful! Despite the familiar track list, every song on this 2CD set is previously unreleased – and essential for longtime Townes fans and newbies alike! Includes "T For Texas", "Who Do You Love", "Sunshine Boy", "Pancho & Lefty" (an alternate 1972 mix without strings and horns), "Sad Cinderella", "Lungs", "Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold", "White Freight Liner Blues", "Two Hands" and more on the studio sessions disc – and the titles on the disc of demos includes "Heavenly Houseboat Blues", "Diamond Heel Blues", "Tower Song", "Hightway Kind", "Old Paint", "Standin'" and more. 28 tracks in all – and it features some excellent notes by Colin Escott. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ernie KovacsErnie Kovacs Album (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Omnivore, Early 60s/1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An audio document of the genius of the Ernie Kovacs TV show of the early 60s – served up with almost as much dynamic energy as the show itself! Given the lack of visuals, the focus here is mostly on dialogue-heavy routines – so there's less of the wordless musical numbers that are often pointed to in examples of the show. But that approach makes the record a great one from a comedic perspective – and really gets at the sly, subtle sense of humor that would have made Kovacs a key talent in films and broadcasting for years to come – had his life not ended at a tragically young age. Includes some great Percy Dovetonsils segments, plus "Albert Gridley", "World's Strongest Man", "Tom Swift", "J Walter Puppybreath", "Strangely Believe It", "Pierre Ragout", and "Question Man". CD also features bonus material – "Hot Nudniks", "The Inch Worm", "It's Been Real", "Your Own Crime Syndicate", "Choco-Spin Factory", and "Little Kapusta Cyclotron Kit". CD
