John FaheyVoice Of The Turtle (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 23.98
A tremendous early statement from the great guitarist John Fahey – and a record that has all his best ideas coming into really sharp focus! Fahey was a very collaborative person right from the start – even as a record collector, before his own recordings – and that spirit is felt here on some of the duet tracks, in which John and associates perform these acoustic instrumental tunes that plumb the past of underground America, but turn it out again into something completely new and fresh – not folk revial, but more a reworked fantasy of the nation, almost as a refuge for the changes of the late 60s. The sound is beautiful – with a flute accompaniment here, a bit of fiddle there, and even Fahey duetting with himself on guitar – thanks to the magic of overdub. As usual with these early Takoma records, the style is very fluid – sometimes very tied to the 78rpm generation, but other points much more towards the freewheeling guitar introspection of some of Fahey's underground contemporaries. The overall sound is amazing, too – as Fahey almost uses the studio as an additional instrument, but in very subtle ways. Titles include "Bottleneck Blues", "Bill Cheatum", "Lewisdale Blues", "Bean Vine Blues", "A Raga Called Pat (part 3)", "A Raga Called Pat Part IV", "Train", "Je Ne Me Suis Reveillais Matin Pas En May", "The Story Of Dorothy Gooch (part 1)", "Nine Pound Hammer", and "Lonesome Valley". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl – and it reproduces the original 12-page booklet! Very nicely done!)

Herbie MannTurtle Bay ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Sweet 70s funk from the great Herbie Mann – a tight small combo set done with plenty of electric touches! Side one, the "up side", features a core combo that's really great – Pat Rebillot on organ and electric piano, David Spinozza on guitar, Jerry Jemmott on bass, Reggie Ferguson on drums, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – and the tunes themselves are a nice mix of covers that come off nicely in this instrumental mode. Side two is billed as the "down side", but is still pretty funky at points – arrangements are a bit fuller, but have a nice soundtrack kind of groove. Pat Rebillot's on keyboards again, and also did some of the arrangements. Titles include "Turtle Bay", "Do It Again", "Happier Than The Morning Sun", "Family Affair", "Reverend Lee", and "Never Ending Song Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert.)

Michael Gibbs/Gary BurtonFestival 69 (3CD set) ... CD
Turtle (UK), 1969. New Copy 3 CDs ... $19.99
A fantastic combination of modern jazz talents – the groundbreaking Gary Burton Quartet, and the young avant ensemble of trombonist Mike Gibbs! The set begins with a fantastic performance by Burton's group – heard here in a lineup that has the guitar of Dave Pritchard sharing equal chromatic roles with Burton's beautiful vibes – alongside sublime bass from Steve Swallow, and drums from Bill Goodwin. Gary solos on a great version of "Chega De Saudade", and other tunes include "General Mojo's Well Laid Plan", "Arise Her Eyes", "And On The Third Day", "Ballet", and "Portsmith Configurations". CD 2 features a full set by Gibbs' group – in a rare recording before their debut album – with a lineup that includes Kenny Wheeler and Trevor Barber on trumpets, Alan Skidmore and Ray Warleigh on saxes, Chris Spedding on guitar, and Chris Pyne on trombone with Gibbs. Tracks are all long, and really beautiful – and include "Nowhere", "Walter L", "Tanglewood 63", and "Sojourn/June The 15th 1967". There's also vibes on these performances, but the notes are a bit unclear – so we're not sure if they're by Burton, or Frank Ricotti – who also worked with Gibbs. Burton's group returns on the funky track "Doin The Pig" – and then CD3 features a full second performance from earlier in 1969 – with a group that also includes John Surman on soprano, Mike Osborne on alto, Henry Lowther on trumpet, Jack Bruce on bass, and Ricotti on vibes. Titles on this set include "Feelings & Things/June The 15th 1967", "Sweet Rain", "Family Joy Oh Boy", and "Fly Time Fly Sigh". CD

✨✧ Fat Jon SextetHonesty – The Unreleased 1963 Studio Session ... CD
Turtle (UK), 1963. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The group's name is a bit hokey, but they've got an excellent lineup that includes a few musicians who'd go on to greater fame in the British jazz scene of the late 60s – working here in a nicely balanced mode of modern styles first forged in the 50s! There's a mix of west coast cool and east coast chamber jazz at times – but the tracks here are all long, which gives plenty of solo space to the individual musicians, instead of having them lost in the arrangements – a good thing, too – given that the group features Chris Pyne on trombone, Ray Warleigh on alto and flute, Tony Roberts on tenor and bass clarinet, Peter Lemer on piano, Danny Thompson on bass, and John Cox on drums. None of the music here was issued at the time – and there's more than enough for two full albums, plus a few bonus live tracks recorded the year before – titles that include "Sister Sadie", "How Can You Lose", "The Theme", "Toccata", "Watermelon Man", "Whisper Not", "Jubilation", "Blues For Snorty", "Ghana", "Chicken N Dumplings", and "Fictive".

Nicholas CarrasMr Peters' Pets (yellow vinyl pressing – with DVD) ... LP
Modern Harmonic/Something Weird, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.99
A very cool soundtrack for a very weird movie – an early 60s nudie film, but one that's a fair bit tamer and sweeter than material from later in the decade! The focus here is on the music – which is surprisingly well-done, and mixes jazz with exotic currents – often with a lot more thoughtfulness than you might expect, at a level that puts some of the best tracks here right up there with the best early 60s Italian noir jazz classics. Nicholas Carras wrote and conducted – but there's a tenorist on the album that really makes the whole thing great, someone who can play with the depth of Plas Johnson at his best. Titles include the eleven-minute "A Happy Turtle" – plus "Jungle Duck", "Three Sporty Ladies", "Petey's Sweeties", "The Happy Animal", "Animal Ambrosia", and "My Little Shasta". LP, Vinyl record album
(On yellow vinyl – plus DVD of the feature film, and a bonus zine too!)

Family Of Mann (Herbie Mann)First Light ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Pretty great stuff – and a record that's often hidden amidst the flurry of so-so Herbie Mann albums from the mid 70s – but is well worth seeking out! The Family Of Mann group is one organized by Herbie Mann, and featuring Steve Gadd on drums, Pat Rebillot on keyboards, Tony Levin on bass, and David Newman on reeds along with Herbie – a combo who backed up Mann on some other records from the time, but who really get to shine center stage here! The band has a strong electric groove on their best moments – with kind of a choppy fusion groove, but one that's tight too – almost funky, at a level that's somewhere near cop/crime soundtrack work of the time. Rebillot's keyboards are great, as always – and titles include "Toot Stick", "Music Is A Game We Play", "The Turtle & The Frog", and the extended jammer "Sunrise Highs". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and a sticker spot.)

Rob Franken ElectrificationTogether ... LP
678 Records (Netherlands), 1972/1975. New Copy ... $24.99
Fantastic Fender Rhodes and other cool keyboards – served up in rare 70s sessions from Dutch jazz legend Rob Franken – tracks that are only making their first appearance here! The record has a mighty lean groove overall – usually just Rob's electric piano and organ in a quartet with electric bass, drums, and guitar – occasionally letting that last instrument get a bit of solo space, but usually just having the sweet keys of Franken in the lead! The tracks from 1972 are all funky keyboard jazz – but some of the numbers from 1975 add in some cool spacey elements too – using electronics in a Herbie Hancock way along with the other instruments in the mix. Titles include "The Pleasant Pheasant", "Rhyme & Reason Time", "Cactus", "The Kumquat Kids", "Together", "Skabadaf", "La Vendedora", "Scintilla", and "Turtle Shake". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cheap Thrills, maybe – but they cut deeply and last forever! This is one of greatest albums by Big Brother & The The Holding Company – and it's also one of the most important in cementing the legacy of singer Janis Joplin. The raw manic energy of the group at their live best is somehow bottled and presented on record as perfectly as ever could be – and even better are the delicate moments that show such an incredible depth! Titles include "Turtle Blues", "Oh Sweet Mary", "Ball & Chain", "Summertime", "Piece Of My Heart", and "I Need A Man To Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonHot Dog ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
From the title, to the cover, to the gritty grooves way down in the wax – this has got to be one of the funkiest Blue Note albums ever – a real landmark from the legendary Lou Donaldson! The set kicks off with a hard and heavy groove from the very first note – thanks to some super-tight drumming by a young Idris Muhammad – still billed under his birth name of Leo Morris on the sleeve, but already hitting the kit with that snapping post-Popcorn style that would revolutionize funky jazz in years to come! Donaldson's plenty smoking himself on electrified alto sax – played with that great mix of flatness and echo that you'd hear in Eddie Harris' albums of the same time – and the rest of the lineup is equally cooking, with Melvin Sparks on guitar, Charles Earland on organ, and Ed Williams blasting away on funky trumpet! Titles include killer remakes of "It's Your Thing" and "Who's Making Love" – plus Donaldson originals "Hot Dog" and "Turtle Walk" – all nice and long, and with a really raw sound!

✨✧ Sid King & The Five StringsGonna Shake This Shake Tonight ... CD
Columbia/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of rare mid 50s Columbia Records singles by Sid King – a key figure in helping hillbilly music transition to rock and roll! Sid is probably more country than some of his rocking contemporaries, and the work here actually seems to be perfectly balanced between the two modes – maybe in part because the group hails from Texas, and in part because much of the production is handled by Don Law – the Columbia country powerhouse, and a studio talent who's got an especially strong ear for making the guitar ring out in the mix! There's a great sense of growth going on over the space of the years in these tunes – definitely hillbilly in the early 50s cuts, but hard rockabilly genius on the later ones too. CD features 29 tracks in all – including "Put Something In The Pot Boy", "Crazy Little Heart", "I Like It", "Warmed Over Kisses Left Over Love", "Booger Red", "Mama I Want You", "But I Don't Care", "Purr Kitty Purr", "Good Rockin Baby", "Ooby Dooby", "Who Put The Turtle In Myrtle's Girdle", and "Hello There Rockin Chair".

TurtlesYou Baby ... LP
White Whale, 1966. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A seminal second set from The Turtles – and a record that really has them sharpening up their sound! The songwriting is smarter than before, and the group's also developing the wit that would really set them apart from the rest of the west coast scene of the 60s – that mode of stepping back, taking a grander look at the music, and coming forward with a great sense of perspective in their sound! There's still a few folksy currents from before – but there's also some deeper, darker modes too – maybe a touch of Brit influence, ala Animals or Kinks – yet slightly lighter west coast too. Titles include "Down In Suburbia", "House Of Pain", "Just A Room", "I Know That You'll Be There", "Flyin High", "Pall Bearing Ball Bearing World", and "Give Love A Trial". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has a stained and flaky corner.)

✨✧ TurtlesHappy Together ... LP
White Whale, 1967. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title cut may well be the biggest tune The Turtles ever recorded – but the whole album's overflowing with the group's brilliance – and their wonderful ear for offbeat tunes for the Sunshine Pop generation! As with "Happy Together", there's a nice edge to a lot of the tracks here – sweet, but with currents of darkness too – as if the group's looking at pop from the outside – able to effortlessly do their thing, while also twisting things around a bit. Yet they also take themselves more than seriously enough to hit pop perfection throughout – on titles that include "Guide For The Married Man", "The Walking Song", "Think I'll Run Away", "Happy Together", "She'd Rather Be With Me", "Like The Seasons", and "Rugs Of Woods & Flowers".

Julie LondonJulie Is Her Name/Julie Is Her Name Vol 2 ... CD
Liberty/EMI, Late 50s. Used ... $6.99
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". Volume 2 is a lesser-known follow-up to Julie London's classic Julie Is Her Name album. The approach here is similar to the first set – with Howard Roberts backing up Julie's vocals, in a style that's quite similar to that used by Barney Kessel the first time around. Red Mitchell's bass is really the only other instrumentation – and the spareness of the set is stunning – with a nakedness that gets past even Julie's heavy turtleneck on the cover! Titles include "If I'm Lucky", "Little White Lies", "Hot Toddy", "Blue Moon", "Goody Goody", and "Spring Is Here". CD

OdysseyHappy Together ... LP
RCA, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A really nice step forward for Odyssey – a record that's a bit tighter and more electric than previous sets, but which also has a nice sort of depth as well! These guys manage to balance a love of the hook with all the right sort of touches to keep the cuts from ever being too poppy or commercial – a balance that may well come from the album's great lineup of instrumentalists – who include Gary Bartz on alto, Bobby Eli on guitar, Marcus Miller on bass, and even some help from Nile Rogers and Bernard Edwards on one track too. Titles include a surprisingly good funky soul cover of The Turtles' "Happy Together" – plus "Together", "Inside Out", "Happy People", "Love's Alright", and "Magic Touch". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousGlitter & Gold – Words & Music By Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest guy/girl songwriting teams of the 60s – featured here in a killer collection of some of their best work! The range of artists here is nicely wide – from rockers to pop crooners to soul groups – and all of the tunes are key readings of songs penned by Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, possibly not the highest-charting versions, but easily some of the greatest ever set to record! Ace really did a great job with this one – matching the heights of their other songwriter series titles, and really bringing out the darkness in the Mann/Weil songs – a subtle sort of sadness that comes through perfectly in most of these versions. The 24 page booklet features track-by-track notes on the tunes – really getting at the story of the recordings – and titles include "It's Not Easy" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Kicks" by Del Shannon, "It's Getting Better" by Mama Cass, "The Bossa Nova" by Tippie & The Clovers, "Hungry" by Paul Revere & The Raiders, "It's A Happening World" by The Tokens, "Chico's Girl" by The Girls, "Glitter & Gold" by The Turtles, "In The Park" by The Drifters, "Where Do I Belong" by Calvin Grayson, "Let Me Walk With You" by The 2 Of Clubs, "She Is Today" by Bergen White, "Girl It's Alright Now" by Bruce & Terry, "Where Have You Been All Of My Life" by Arthur Alexander, and "I'd Be So Good For You" by Joanie Sommers.

VariousRewind! 6 – Original Classics Re-Worked, Remixed, Re-Edited, & Rewound ... LP
Ubiquity, 2015. Near Mint- 2LP ... $13.99
It's been almost a decade since the previous volume in the legendary Rewind series – but given the quality of the music, it's definitely been worth the wait! This edition may well be the coolest so far – as it really offers up some fresh versions of old school classics from the 60s and 70s – funky remakes of songs by Lyn Collins, Black Sabbath, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, James Brown, Turtles, and others – and even some more modern songs from Outkast and Skrillex too. Almost all numbers approach the music in a heavy funk style – sometimes with vocals, sometimes just instrumental – and titles include "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" by Black Randy, "Party People" by The Echocentrics, "Bang Bang" by The Monophonics, "Rock Your Body" by Shawn Lee, "Date With The Rain" by Frankie Gee, "Planet Caravan" by Brown Sabbath, "Happy Together" by James Combs, "Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites" by Jed & Lucia, "Spill The Wine" by Johnny Frigo, "Apache" by Shawn Lee's Incredible Tabla Band, and "Dreams" by Electric Peanut Butter Company.
