Gary McFarland & Co.Does The Sun Really Shine On The Moon? ... LP
Skye, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A wonderful album from the great Gary McFarland – and completely sublime all the way through! The record's part jazz, part easy, and all McFarland, with a cool compressed breezy vibe that's just about impossible to describe accurately. Gary's vibes are wonderfully set in a small combo with reeds by Jerome Richardson, bass by Richard Davis, organ by Warren Bernhardt, and guitar by Sam Brown. The group play haunting, almost-invisible versions of 60s pop tunes, like "God Only Knows", "Here, There & Everywhere", and "O Morro" – plus a jaunty McFarland original called "Flea Market".

✨✧ Gabor Szabo1969 ... LP
Skye, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
One of Gabor Szabo's amazing late 60s albums for the Skye label – trippy, jazzy, and with a mod exotica vibe that would never be matched again! Gabor's playing guitar in a two-guitar frontline, which makes for lots of dreamy interplay between the strings – a shifting pattern of sound that's even more exotic than some of Szabo's earlier work on Impulse, thanks to added help from guitarist Francois Vaz. The rest of the group is great too – and features mighty Mike Melvoin on organ, plus fender bass, cello, and percussion – all produced by Gary McFarland with a wonderfully evocative feel! Titles include "Dear Prudence", "Stormy", "Walk Away Renee", "Michael From Mountains", "I've Just Seen A Face", and "You Won't See Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing. Cover has an index label with clear tape on the spine.)

Gabor SzaboDreams (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Skye/Ebalunga (Austria), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
The guitar genius of Gabor Szabo – set to magnificent arrangements by Gary McFarland! The set's one of the most sophisticated albums Szabo ever cut – and has a slow-building style that steps off of his Impulse years with a deeper, broader vision of music. By the time of the set, McFarland himself was hitting a more contemplative style in his own music – and you can hear that shift in this album as well, especially in the moodier, mellower moments. Instrumentation includes violin, cello, and French Horn – all used sparingly to augment Szabo's small combo with piano by McFarland! Titles include lots of originals – "The Fortune Teller", "Half The Day Is Night", "Galatea's Guitar", and "Lady In the Moon". LP features bonus tracks – single edits of "Fire Dance" and "Ferris Wheel". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lena Horne & Gabor SzaboLena & Gabor ... LP
Skye, 1970. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
Think what you want about Lena Horne – but this is a plenty darn groovy album! Sure, Lena's style is usually a bit classy and uptown – almost so much so that we don't really dig most of her records. But here, she's working in a very groovy style – paired with the great guitarist Gabor Szabo, in a set of sweetly swinging tunes that share many touches with Gabor's grooviest sides for Impulse and Skey in the 60s! Gabor produced and arranged with Gary McFarland – and the pair really transform the sound of Lena's voice, taking her normally-poised vocals and loosening them up with a subtly funky undercurrent. Richard Tee plays some great organ on the set, in a small combo that also includes Grady Tate and Chuck Rainey – and titles include a lot of Beatles covers – like "Rocky Raccoon", "Fool On The Hill", and "In My Life" – plus the cuts "Nightwind", "Watch What Happens", and "My Mood Is You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Non-gatefold Skye pressing.)

✨✧ Gary McFarlandAmerica the Beautiful (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible document of late 60s America – composed and conducted by Gary McFarland, in a style that's much more ambitious than any of his other work! The album's fully titled "America The Beautiful: An Account Of Its Disappearance" – and features "movements" with very telling subtitles that include "On This Site Shall Be Erected", "80 Miles An Hour Through Beer Can Country", "Suburbia: Two Poodles And A Plastic Jesus", and our personal favorite, "Due To A Lack Of Interest, Tomorrow Has Been Cancelled". Gary's really wearing his politics on his sleeve here – picturing a late 60s America that's without hope, without revolution, and clearly in danger of falling prey to its own plasticization. The whole thing's a wonderful antidote to the "revolution is coming" side of the 60s that is more popularly pushed – and Gary was one of the few musicians at the time with an eye that was clear enough to see that in the 60s, you could sing "The Times Are A-Changing" – but in reality, the corporations were a-growing! Musically, the album features a larger group of jazz players working in a full, rich style that has lots of soundtrack touches. There's a real Axelrod-like feel to the set – with string passages one minute, funky rhythms the next – and some breakout jazz soloing that really colors the tunes nicely! Players include Jerome Richardson, Eric Gale, Bernard Purdie, and Chuck Rainey – and Gary's mostly doing the conducting on the set. CD

Billy EckstinePrime Of My Life ... LP
Motown, 1965. Very Good ... $4.99
A lost bit of work from Billy, and a suprisingly nice album that sets the stage for a host of more sophisticated male singers to come! The record features Billy with lush arrangements by Melba Liston, Gil Askey, and Bobby Tucker – singing in a deep and sensuous style that's similar to that used by Grady Tate on some of his albums for Skye, cut a few years later. Billy's sounding better here than he has in years – and titles include "Feeling Good", "This Is All I Ask", "Fantasy", "The Prime Of My Life", "Maybe Today", and "Had You Been Around".

Gabor SzaboMizrab ... LP
CTI, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
Wonderful work from guitarist Gabor Szabo – a record that really helped to shift his sound and style into the 70s! The groove here is often open and free – taking off from some of the exoticism of Gabor's 60s albums on Impulse and Skye, but with a bit more of the CTI electric groove – thanks to arrangements from Bob James, who also plays keyboards on the set! The mix of Gabor's exotic tones and the deeper groove of CTI is a surprisingly great blend – and really helps to open up the guitarist's sound for a whole new generation. Drums are by Billy Cobham and Jack DeJohnette, who's especially funky on the great track "Thirteen" – and titles also include a great cover of "Summer Breeze", and the cuts "Mizrab", and "Concerto".

VariousUnder The Influence Vol 4 – A Collection Of Rare Soul & Disco Compiled By Nick The Record ... CD
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... $18.99
A wonderful set of rare club grooves – maybe the best volume so far in the Under The Influence series – put together by DJ Nick The Record! They call him Nick The Record for a good reason – as he doesn't just know the music, he knows how to make it move, too – especially on some of the special edits done for this collection – a really great array of long tracks that are mixed in here with straighter versions of the tunes – all of which really show a deep knowledge of the rare side of the clubby spectrum! Nick's quite a collector, and has really tracked down some obscure grooves for this set – including a fair bit of singles we'd be unlikely to find in all our years of digging. 21 tracks on 2CDs. Titles include "Can't You See Me" by Boogsie, "Ain't No Need (Nick The Record re-united re-edit)" by Skye, "Music For Us (inst)" by Blackway & Helene, "Tut Tut Twins (Nick The Record re-edit)" by Betty & Beverly Prudhomme, "Feel The Beat (inst – Nick The Record minor tweak edit)" by MC Roscoe, "Say That You Love Me (Nick The Record re-edit)" by Jean Adebamo, "Palo Bonito (Nick The Record re-edit)" by Katunga, "Do You Want Me Baby Like I Want You" by Santth by more.

VariousStone Crush – Memphis Modern Soul 1977 to 1987 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A look at Memphis soul music that goes way beyond any Stax, Goldwax, or Atlantic Records collections you might own – partly because all of the tracks here are from a time in the city when all those other labels had stopped recording! Memphis is usually remembered for a 60s/early 70s stretch when the city was brimming over with record labels, studios, and top soul talent – but that latter aspect of the scene didn't stop when the record companies went bust – and instead, it just went underground, as lesser-known artists kept on developing great new sounds and styles! As you'd guess from the title, most of the work here is in a modern soul mode – often with rhythms that have a bit of boogie or club in the mix, but also with some of that developing southern soul approach that was maybe more strongly associated with the Malaco label down in Jackson. The scope of music is great, and the set's got very detailed notes on this under-documented time in the history of Memphis soul music – to support a great tracklist that includes "Can We Melt The Ice" by Morris, "You Mean Everything To Me" by Sweet Pearl, "The Doctor" by LA, "Stone Crush On You" by OT Skyes, "What Does It Take To Know A Woman Like You" by Greg Mason, "Always" by Silk Satin & Lace, "Right Thing" by Kick, "Convict Me" by Libra, "Slice Of Heaven" by Cato, "I'm Choosing You" by Magic Morris, "No Seat Dancin" by Frankie Alexander, and "Keep It To Yourself" by Captain Fantastic & Starr Fleet.

✨✧ Paul SimonGraceland – 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD/2DVD box set) ... CD
Legacy, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Paul Simon's mid 80s landmark – a record that brought together Simon's unique voice and pop folk songwriting skill with South African, Chicano, zydeco other global musical styles – held together by some of the best songs Simon ever put together! With lesser material, this would feel like the well-intentioned "world music" album by an aging star, but Simon transcends that in a big way with catchy, intelligent songs and expert production. Includes "The Boy In The Bubble", "Graceland", "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes", "You Can Call Me Al", "Under African Skyes", "All Around The World Or The Myth Of Fingerprints" and more. Deluxe edition includes an additional disc with bonus tracks and extra studio sessions, plus a concert DVD and the documentary Under African Skies. CD
(Deluxe edition in a heavy, cloth slipcase with poster, book, and loads of extra material – plus bonus 5 track Graceland Tour 1989 CD!)
