Dennis CoffeyOne Night At Moreys – 1968 ... CD
Omnivore, 1968. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
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 ... $9.99 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

Allen GinsbergAllen Ginsberg At Reed College – First Recorded Reading Of Howl & Other Poems ... LP
Omnivore, 1956. New Copy ... $21.99 22.98
A very early moment of genius from Allen Ginsberg – a 1956 poetry reading at Reed College, in Portland – which features the first-ever live reading of his famous poem "Howl" – an anthem for the beat generation! The work is presented here in two parts, plus an introduction and with Ginsberg picking up a dropped line – alongside other works that include "A Supermarket In California", "The Trembling Of The Lamb", "Over Kansas", "Wild Orphan", "A Dream Record", "Blessed Are The Muses", and "Epithalamion", which was later published as "Love Poem On A Theme By Whitman".

Vince GuaraldiComplete Warner Brothers/Seven Arts Recordings (Oh Good Grief/Eclectic/Alma-Ville/bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99 25.98
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)".

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

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

StaplesFamily Tree (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1977. New Copy ... $9.99 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

✨✧ Hasaan Ibn Ali (Hasaan)Metaphysics – The Lost Atlantic Album ... CD
Atlantic/Omnivore, 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost jazz treasure from one of the most enigmatic pianists of the 60s – the legendary Hasaan, who recorded famously with Max Roach on Atlantic Records, but who also left behind this rare session that's never seen the light of day until now! Hasaan hails from Philly, where he was a player who'd made huge waves in that city, with a technique that rivaled the modernism of Elmo Hope or Herbie Nichols – but a musician who rarely ever got exposure outside of the city, which is what makes this album so essential! Even more essential is the fact that the set features work from a very young Odean Pope on tenor – really sounding tremendous here next to Hasaan – maybe the Charlie Rouse to his Thelonious Monk, although both musicians work in territory that's even more mindblowing! All titles here are originals by Ali, filled with all these amazing changes and angles – driven forth even more strongly by the work of Art Davis on bass and Kali Madi on drums – on tunes that include "True Train", "Richard May Love Give Powell", "Atlantic Ones", "Viceroy", "El Hasaan", "Epitome", and "Metaphysics". Album also features three shorter alternates of titles on the record. CD

✨✧ Mister RogersIt's Such A Good Feeling – The Best Of Mister Rogers ... LP
Omnivore, Early 90s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A full set of vocal performances by the legendary Fred Rogers – mostly tracks from later years, and all done with superb accompaniment from Johnny Costa – who provides the spare, sprightly piano lines that always make the Mister Rogers lyrics sparkle so much! You'll recognize most of these tunes from the famous show – if you were lucky enough to watch it when you were a kid – and the LP is a nicely overwhelming package of the sorts of upbeat, positive tunes that Rogers always gave us on the airwaves – every bit as understated here as on the screen, in a set that also features a few unreleased tracks too. 21 tracks in all – including "Pretending", "Tomorrow", "You Can Never Go Down The Drain", "Today Is A Very Special Day", "Be Brave Be Strong", "I'm Taking Care Of You", "Once Upon Each Lovely Day", "It's You I Like", and "Tree Tree Tree".

✨✧ Bobby HatfieldStay With Me – The Richard Perry Sessions ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Omnivore, Early 90s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Warner/Omnivore, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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".

Warner/Omnivore, 1995. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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". 2LP version also includes the unissued songs "Rhapsody In Blue", "Love Is Here To Stay", and "What A Wonderful World".
