Vi ReddBird Call (United Artists) ... CD
United Artists/EMI (Japan), 1963. Used ... $18.99
An excellent bit of early 60s soulbop – and one of two rare albums ever cut by the obscure female alto player Vi Redd, one of the few women sax players of her generation to get recorded! The album's got an easygoing groove that's mighty nice – a touch of R&B at times, but not nearly as much as you'd hear on Redd's other record for Atlantic – thanks to a sensitive jazz-based presentation by a group that also features a young Roy Ayers on vibes, making his first-ever appearance on record! Other players include Herb Ellis on guitar and Russ Freeman on piano – plus Kansas Lawrence on trumpet, who's clearly a bigger-name player working under another name. Vi sings on the record, in addition to playing alto sax – in this laidback way that's a bit like Trudy Pitts – and although the record's billed as a tribute to Charlie Parker, it's got a lot more going on than that! Tracks include "Summertime", "Old Folks", "Just Friends", "Now's The Time", "Anthropology", and "Cool Blues Perhaps". CD

John AddisonTom Jones ... LP
United Artists, 1963. Sealed ... $4.99
A period score, but one with plenty of groovy touches – a masterpiece of 60s film scoring from the great John Addison! Addison's music for the famous Tony Richardson version of Tom Jones is every bit as playful as the images on the screen – with only marginal aesthetics of the period of the story, and instead lots of romping melodies, carried out on horn parts, percussive passages, and even some cool harpsichord bits. Most of the tunes move quite quickly – as does the action on screen – and titles include "Sylvan Misadventures", "Ladies Are Irresistible", "Love Theme From Tom Jones", "Wine & Women", "If He Swing By The String", and "The Squire Steps In".

Gato BarbieriLast Tango In Paris ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the greatest moments ever from saxophonist Gato Barbieri – and that's saying a lot, given that by the time of this recording, he'd already had a great 60s run as an avant jazz musician, and started the 70s with a string of albums that criss-crossed jazz and South American musical styles! Yet Last Tango In Paris may well be Barbieri's crowning achievement – a sublime record that draws on all the richer, more emotive themes of his Latin America projects, but gives them new focus in the arrangements of Oliver Nelson – who ensures that the music is never too cheesy or overdone – quite a feat, given the sexy setting of the film! Gato draws a lot from Argentine tango, but often uses his own sax solos in place of a more familiar bandoneon – in a way that pushes the "new tango" mode of the time even farther – especially when set amidst Nelson's wonderful orchestrations. Titles include many versions of the "Last Tango" theme, plus the tracks "Girl In Black", "Jeanne", "Why Did She Choose You?", "It's Over", and "Fake Ophelia". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray BarrettoEl Ray Criollo ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Very Good ... $34.99
Ray Barretto just before the Latin Soul era – working in the excellent style he used on his Charanga Moderna album – a choppy groove that has plenty of weird twists and turns – always rhythmic, and always plenty darn soulful! The instrumentation here is a mix of small combo jazz and some of the charanga modes – with two violins, trumpet, trombone, piano, and timbales – plus vocals by Willie Garcia and Adalberto Santiago. The groove is nice and sinister on the best cuts – with that strange offbeat sound that Ray was bringing to Latin music at the time – an edge that was missing from earlier work, and which really helped set the scene for the boogaloo generation! Titles include "Rareza En Guajira", "Descarga Criolla", "Salsa y Dulzura", "Don Lengua", and "Yo Soy La Candela". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Hard to tell if these are new versions of songs, or simply ones lifted from Barry's UA soundtracks – but from the notes and the music, the album seems to be a unique one. Barry's sounding nice and lean here, working his way through his own work – like "The James Bond Theme", "Goldfinger", "From Russia With Love", and "Zulu Stomp" – plus tracks like "Spanish Harlem", "Moody River", "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White", and "Baubles, Bangles, & Beads".

John BarryKnack & How To Get It ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Near Mint- ... $8.99
An incredibly groovy soundtrack that's also one of the best-ever scores written by John Barry – a masterpiece of jazzy scoring that never gets old! There's some wicked use of Hammond in the main theme – played by Brit jazzer Alan Haven – a catchy little groove that dances nicely as the record unfolds – over rhythms that feature a snapping snare that's equally great! Barry brings in just a touch of the James Bond boldness, then mixes it with these warmer jazz leanings – all in a blend that's quite unique, and which easily makes the score one of our favorites of the 60s. A young Michael Crawford sings a great vocal version of the theme – "The Knack" – and other tracks include "Photo Strip", "Doors & Bikes & Things", "Ecstasy", "Three On A Bed", and "Blues & Out".

John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/NilssonMidnight Cowboy ... LP
United Artists, 1969. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – which is great in itself – but it's Barry's own work on the title theme that we totally love. "Midnight Cowboy" is a darkly turning slowly pondering tune that will haunt us until the day we die – performed here on the original number with a sad-tinged harmonica that unites both the country of Joe Buck's roots and the sleaze of the love generation. The tune's great – and is matched here by the whimsy of "Florida Fantasy", and the Barry tracks "Fun City" and "Science Fiction". Another great number on the set is "Old Man Willow", a really tripped-out longer track from Elephant's Memory – swirling around in organ and hippie vocals, and oddly echoing the main Barry theme of the set at times!

Shirley BasseyNever Never Never/Good Bad But Beautiful ... CD
United Artists/BGO (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 16.99
Two early 70s albums from Shirley Bassey – back to back in a single set! Never Never Never is a warmly-crafted 70s album from the great Shirley Bassey – a set that continues that great move she was making at the end of the 60s – shaking off some of the bolder, brassier styles that famously got her going at the start, but which were maybe sounding a bit dated after the James Bond soundtracks got too much play! Instead, Bassey's opening up in a nicely mature mode – maybe making the same sort of shift between soul and adult modes that Johnny Mathis was hitting during the same period – and working with great UK maestros Johnny Harris and Arthur Greenslade, both able to balance strings and soul on titles that include "Never Never Never", "Make The World A Little Younger", "No Regrets", "Going Going Gone", "Somehow", "I Won't Last A Day Without You", "The Old Fashioned Way", and "Someone Who Cares". On Good Bad But Beautiful, Shirley Bassey is at her mellow best – sounding very different than the brassy vocalist who first rose to international fame with "Goldfinger" – yet still able to work through all the rich aspects of her great vocal range! Arthur Greenslade handles the backings, and the style is mature, and updated in maybe the way that Frank Sinatra was hitting at the time – both in the choice of songs, and in the way that Greenslade sets Shirley up for the best reading of the lyric. Titles include "I'll Be Your Audience", "Emotion", "Good Bad But Beautiful", "Jesse", "Run On & On & On", "Feel Like Makin Love", and "I'll Be Your Audience". CD

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah BandLet's Make Up & Be Friendly ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The last album from the legendary Bonzo Dog Band – issued at a time when the group were going their separate ways, hence the somewhat ironic title! The set's possibly a bit more musical than before – and almost even shows some traces of the hipper, artier side of the British scene that was bubbling under in the jazz rock generation – that mix of sounds and styles that would emerge more fully on Virgin Records in the next few years. Instrumentation is actually quite focused at times – and includes saxes, flute, xylophone, and some surprisingly well-played guitar. But most noteworthy are the more straightforward lyrics of some tunes – the lack of jokes and more personally poetic moments in their place. There's still a fair bit of funny bits, too, though – and titles include "The Strain", "Turkeys", "King Of Scurf", "Waiting For The Wardrobe", "Slush", "Bad Blood", and "Rawlinson End".

Although she later lost all connection to jazz singing, in this early record, Diahann Carroll does a ok job with a batch of standards and pop material, conducted by Peter Matz, in his years before Barbara Streisand. The album's reaching for that same sort of classy sound, but thankfully has a lot less schmaltz and fake emotion – and Diahann keeps things nicely reigned in on tracks like "Heat Wave", "Shopping Around", "All or Nothing at All", and "Stormy Weather".

John ColtraneColtrane Time ... LP
United Artists, 1958. Very Good+ ... $29.99
This is a repackaged version of an album that was originally issued under Cecil Taylor's name, under the title Hard Drive (and later Stereo Drive, or something like that). The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a group that includes Kenny Dorham, Chuck Israels, and Louis Hayes. The music is a startling mix of styles – as Taylor's heavy piano clashes noisily with Trane's free flowing lines on the tenor. It doesn't always work, but it's well worth a listen, and stands as a critical meeting of two important talents that were both best known on their own. Tracks include "Shifting Down", "Double Clutching", and "Just Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

Country GazetteDon't Give Up Your Day Job ... LP
United Artists, 1973. Very Good+ ... $11.99
It's hard to imagine these guys giving up their day job, as of all the country rock groups at the start of the 70s, they've probably got more instrumental talents than most! In fact, these guys come across more like some of the new wave of bluegrass groups that were appearing on indie labels than you'd expect from some of the bigger label work of the time – harmonizing wonderfully, and serving up instrumentation that's heavy on deft fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and guitar! There's a really fresh approach – a bit like that new way of presenting old roots that groups like Seldom Scene were touching on – and the group serve up their own material, and work by Elton John, Don McLean, and CSNY. Titles include "Huckleberry Hornpipe", "The Fallen Eagle", "My Oklahoma", "Teach Your Children", "Honky Cat", "Snowball", and "Deputy Dalton". LP, Vinyl record album

A real shift in sound for the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – as the group drop the "nitty gritty" for their name, and go for a well-rounded sound that shows off their songwriting in a very different way! There's little of the rootsy elements of Will The Circle Be Unbroken here – as the group warm things up in more of an AOR style, yet still include some acoustic elements too – almost going for a mix of country roots and more polished crossover modes, with a sound that's more in keeping with their LA roots than most of their other 70s records. Yet taken from the perspective of a mainstream record, the songwriting and execution are great – definitely a cut above – and titles include "You Can't Stop Loving Me Now", "Whoa Babe", "Escaping Reality", "For A Little While", "Lights", and "Wild Nights".

There's a vibe here that resonates nicely with some other late 60s sessions on Liberty Records – kind of an expansion of a Cali soul jazz mode, similar to the style the Crusaders were starting to go for – but colored in with some of Duke's obviously hip inclinations as well!

A mindblowing first album from ELO – recorded back at a time when the group were taking the "Orchestra" in their name seriously, and when the group included Roy Wood! While Jeff Lynne's nascent pop genius is firmly in place already, the album's also awash in some of Wood's madder, folksier touches – making for a juxtaposition of styles that really amazing. Strings, guitars, oboes, and horns all come together in a post-folk mode that conjures up images of a crumbling England that stretches back to years before the birth of the British Empire!

ExcitersTell Him ... CD
United Artists/EMI, 1963. Used ... $7.99
One of our favorite girl soul albums of all time – and a set that's way more than just the usual female pop group of the 60s! The Exciters are three gals and one guy, but they draw their main strength from lead vocalist Brenda Reid – who's got a deep soul vibe that's years ahead of its time – not afraid to be raw and ready, and unbridled in a way that lets a richer sensuality really seep through the tunes. Production is by Leiber and Stoller, who seem to fan the flames even more – as they did on their impeccable productions for The Coasters and Drifters – and the album's filled with loads of great material that goes way beyond the title hit, which is still great in itself! Titles include "He's Got The Power", "Say It With Love", "Tell Him", "It's Love That Really Counts", and "Drama Of Love". 20 track package – including the whole of the group's album for United Artists, plus extra singles!

United Artists, 1959. Very Good- ... $14.99
A great little album by this wonderful trumpeter – and one that we passed up for years because we were afraid of the words "brass" and "shout" in the title! If you're a Farmer fan, though, don't worry about this being some sort of snoozy "bold n brassy" session – because it's a much more subtle record, and features some excellent lead solos by Farmer, set amidst a larger group arranged wonderfully by Benny Golson! Golson brings a great sense of balance to the album – mixing some larger horn passages with soulfully snapping rhythms, all at a level that still allows plenty of space for Farmer to solo sweetly on trumpet. Other players on the record include Lee Morgan on trumpet and Curtis Fuller on trombone, Percy Heath on bass, and either Philly Joe Jones or Elvin Jones on drums – and titles include "Minor Vamp", "Nica's Dream", "Stella By Starlight", "Moanin", "April In Paris", and "Five Spot After Dark".

A seminal session as a leader by the young Art Farmer – recorded for United Artists, and a great set of tight lyrical tunes, played by Farmer in his sparkling style – in a group along with Benny Golson on tenor and Bill Evans on piano. Evans is a special treat here, as the 1958 session was recorded at a time when he was making a fair bit of appearances in various rhythm sections for horn players (like Miles Davis) – and although this role in Evans' career was a short one, it yielded some amazingly beautiful moments, as you'll hear on this album. Art's brother Addison plays bass, and Dave Bailey rounds out the group on drums. Tracks include "Cold Breeze", "Mox Nix", "Jubilation", and "Fair Weather". LP, Vinyl record album

Tunes are tight and short, but pack plenty of punch – and the album also features great work on saxes from Chris Mercer and Dick Heckstall-Smith.

A playful little soundtrack for this offbeat Patty Duke film – handled by Dominic Frontiere in ways that are sometimes sentimental and respectful, and sometimes seem to be poking a bit of fun at the subject matter! Frontiere's usually our favorite when he hits an upbeat groove – and there's some nice 60s mod moments here that definitely make the soundtrack work seeing out – kind of jaunty numbers that are real standouts. But some of the mellower moments aren't bad either – and have a nice sort of balance next to the other cuts.

United Artists, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
An amazing little soundtrack from James William Guercio – music composed for his only cinematic effort as a director – for a film that features Robert Blake as a Native American cop! The score is heavy on jazzy horns with an undercurrent of funk – very similar to Guercio's best modes working with the group Chicago in the early days, and his productions for Blood Sweat & Tears! The depth of the music is quite a surprise – as we never new that James had this ability on his own – and it's recorded with that crystal clear quality that made him a revolutionary talent in the studio, too. Some numbers have a tight cop show sort of funk, while others have an expansive sound that's a nice contrast – and in addition to instrumental tunes "Free From The Devil", "The Chase", "Prelude", "Monument Valley", "Overture", and "Jolene's Dance" – the set also features "Most Of All" by The Marcels, "Meadow Mountain Top" by Mark Spoelstra, and "Tell Me" by Terry Keith of Chicago.

Arrangements are by Arthur Wright, and they've got lots of warm touches that really work perfectly with ZZ's vocals – pushing the whole album to a top-shelf level, and making it a lost treasure of southern soul that we'd rank with the best of the genre from the time! Titles include "Your Love Makes Me Feel Good", "Cause I Love You", "Friendship Only Goes So Far", "You Were Wrong", and "I've Got To Get You Back". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenyon HopkinsFugitive Kind ... LP
United Artists, 1960. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A fairly dramatic score by Hopkins, written for this film directed by Sidney Lumet, written by Tennessee Williams, and starring Marlon Brando! About half of the tracks are in an introspective Hopkins mode – but there's also a few others that have twanging guitar and kind of a "roadhouse" sort of feel – most likely written for the raunchier scenes in the film. Titles include "Let Me Out", "Pay Day", "Alone", "The Reformer", "Get Crazy", and "Bird Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Lena HorneSoul ... CD
United Artists, 1966. Used ... $5.99
Groovy Lena Horne from the 60s – an album that's a heck of a lot hipper and more swinging than most of her sets from a decade before! That unmistakable Horne style of singing is still very much in place here – but the backings are often tightly punctuated, with a gently soulful groove that definitely lives up to the title, and which serves up most of the tracks with a nice little sense of rhythm. Ray Ellis is working here with Lena on the backings – and his style is arguably a bit groovier than usual too, with more of the syncopations you might find in mid 60s Quincy Jones or Oliver Nelson. Titles include "I Got A Worried Man", "What The World Needs Now Is Love", "Love Bug", "Taste Of Honey", "I'd Like To Hear It Sometime", and "You Know What To Do". CD

A real gem from Jay & The Americans – a record that was part of an initial step forward with their own creative direction, but which also nods back at the earlier music that had inspired their work! The set's filled with older gems from the early years of rock and soul – delivered by the group with a fuller set of arrangements, but also this strange current of blue – maybe a melancholy for the past, or in a way that almost uses the sounds of older times as a mask to hide the sadder currents of the present.

Sparkling work from singer Irene Kral – and possibly the best album she ever cut! The backings here are by the Herb Pomeroy group – a slightly modern ensemble that still knows how to swing with a good dose of Boston soul – and the overall feel of the album's a lot more forceful than some of Irene's other albums, packing a punch we didn't know she had, and which we're happy to hear! There's a few cooler overtones here – somewhat in the June Christie mode – but overall the sound is upbeat, full, and swinging – served up with in arrangements by Ernie Wilkins and Al Cohn.

Francis LaiLive For Life (Vivre Pour Vivre) ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Sealed ... $2.99
A stunning soundtrack from the legendary Francis Lai – a record that got a fair bit of circulation at the time, as it was a follow up to his huge global hit, A Man & A Woman (aka Un Homme Et Une Femme)! The style here is equally great – a groovy sound that completely changed the way soundtrack music was used in the 60s – airy, jazzy, and with the same mix of bossa and mod styles that you might find in some of your favorite Italian soundtracks of the time – although at a global scale, we always think that Francis really set the tune for others to follow! There's some nice organ, great use of trumpet, and the record even has some groovy vocals at points from the wonderful Nicole Croisille – who'd sung on the Man & A Woman soundtrack, and also worked with Lai on other Saravah Records albums too. And in a way, since Pierre Barouh had a hand in some of these tunes, the whole thing is almost a precursor to Saravah – certainly, like A Man & A Woman, where Barouh had some help in raising the funds for that project. Titles include "Theme To Candice", "Theme To Catherine", "Theme To Robert", "All At Once It's Love", "Zoom", and a few versions of the title cut! LP, Vinyl record album

The album features a great original tune – "Two On The Aisle" – one of those magical tunes that was penned for the album, and lost in the shifting sea of time, but which keeps us digging for Steve & Eydie, and the way they handle a cheesy duet unlike anyone else.

Ronnie Laws at the top of his early game – working in a tight mix of jazz and soul put together with some great help from Wayne Henderson's At Home Productions – very much in the hit style that team was putting out at the time! The work's surprisingly open and hip compared to efforts like this from a decade later – still smooth in production, but with lots of room for instrumental solos, and a groove that's still more heavy on fusion influences than anything else! Laws plays tenor, flute, and soprano sax – and other players include Larry Dunn on keyboards and Melvin Robinson on guitar – and a few cuts feature chorus vocals, by hip singers who include Eloise and Debra Laws, Diane Reeves, and Phillip Bailey. Titles include "All For You", "These Days", "Flame", "Living Love", "Joy", "Live Your Life Away", and "Love Is Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Deke LeonardIceberg/Kamikaze (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/BGO (UK), 1974. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 16.99
Two solo albums from Deke Leonard – back to back in a single set, with bonus tracks too! First up is Iceberg – an overlooked solo set from Deke Leonard – once a member of the group Man, out here on his own in a very unusual, very specific sort of style! The guitar work is every bit as sharp as Leonard's work with Man, but the music moves through a range of older influences and more personal moments – almost pub rock with glam production – although again, that's maybe too general to get at the really specific spirit of the record! Leonard's a surprisingly strong talent – and the record's one of the many that fell through the cracks back in the day, but which clearly gets great handling by a big label, with well-deserved hope for a superstar. Titles include "Razor Blade & Rattlesnake", "Jesse", "Broken Ovation", "A Hard Way To Live", "Looking For A Man", "The Ghost Of Musket Flat", and "Crosby". On Kamikaze, Deke Leonard's really finding himself as a solo artist – so much so, he begins the album with an instrumental, then continues to push his strengths on that instrument every bit as much as his edgey vocals! As with his previous record, there's some great help here from old bandmates in Man – rock-solid rhythms that feature lots of strong work on bass from Martin Ace, whose strengths also really help keep things focused. Titles include "Cool Summer Rain", "Sharpened Claws", "In Search Of Sarah & Twenty Six Horses", "April The Third", and "The Black Gates Of Death". 2CD set also features bonus tracks – "She's A Cow", "Diamond Road", "Turning In Circles", and "The Aching Is So Sweet".

Ken McIntyreWay Way Out ... LP
United Artists, 1963. Very Good+ ... $49.99
One of the fantastically beautiful records that reed player Ken McIntyre cut for United Artists in the early 60's. McIntyre was always one of the great unsung modernists of his time, and his work on assorted reed instruments is right up there with Eric Dolphy and Roland Kirk. This session has him playing with a jazz rhythm section (bass and drums), plus a string quartet. McIntyre soars over the top of the strings in sharply arcing solos, as they bank around in rhythmic patterns and melodies, while the drums hold the whole thing together. The record is stunning, and sounds like few other albums that we can describe. The whole thing's fantastic, and some of the titles include "Reflections", "Tip Top", "Chittlin's and Cavyah", and "Miss Ann". LP, Vinyl record album

Garnet's got an incredible voice – both rough and smooth at the same time, recorded on the east coast, but with a honest earthy quality that sort of feels like southern soul from the same generation. This well-done compilation brings together work from Garnet's recordings for the United Artists/Veep label in the early and mid 60s – with tracks that include "Cry Baby", "For Your Precious Love", "Baby Don't You Weep", "One Girl", "A Quiet Place", "A Little Bit Of Soap", "It Was Easier To Hurt Her", "I'll Take Good Care Of You", "It's Just A Matter Of Time", "My Baby", "It's Been Such A Long Way Home", and "That Goes To Show You".

Some of the themes on here share the Greek stylings of Theodorakis' more popular soundtrack work – but there's also a lot more darker numbers – strung together in a variety of moods that really captures the oddness of the film. A few tracks feature dreamy vocals by Melina Mercouri, almost in a lullaby style mode – and others are more orchestral. The really standout track is "Goodbye John Sebastian", which features sound effects from the film, organ work, and a spooky recitation by Anthony Perkins! Other titles include "Love Theme From Phaedra", "Only You", "The Fling", "Candlelight", "Rodostimo", and "One More Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing.)

Ike & Tina TurnerWorld Of Ike & Tina – Live ... CD
United Artists/BGO (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
A fiercely funky live set from Ike & Tina Turner – one that almost feels like some of the James Brown albums at The Apollo – given the expanded structure of the presentation, which also includes the whole Ike Turner universe! The show gets announced with this bold sense of pride – ala some of James' "showtime" announcements – and it begins with funky backings from The Family Vibe, who continue the groove throughout – then opens to the Ikettes singing on their own, before Tina takes the stage and makes the whole thing really come together! There's a great variety of material here – all of which gets a really sharp sound, thanks to the setting – and Ike and the crew really transform the tunes, and set them up perfectly for Tina's vocals to knock them out of the park. Tracks include "Let Me Touch Your Mind", "Shaft", "I Gotcha", "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window", "Dust My Broom", "I Wish It Would Rain", "Get Back", "Games People Play", "Annie Had A Baby", "Chopper", "River Deep Mountain High", and "Just One More Day".

Franz WaxmanTaras Bulba ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Sealed Gatefold ... $7.99
A mix of dramatic moments and slight exotic themes from Franz Waxman – penned for an early 60s film that starred Yul Brynner as Taras Bulba and Tony Curtis as his son! Waxman's music has a gloriously full sort of sound – every bit the best Hollywood mode for an action epic like this – with enough ancient themes to trump some of the similar efforts coming out of the European film scene at the time. Instrumentation is heavy on strings and woodwinds, often arranged with great complexity amidst the drama – and titles include "The Black Plague", "Tara's Pledge", "No Retreat", "Leaving Home", "Chase At Night", "The Sleigh Ride", "The Birth Of Andrei", and "The Ride To Dubno".

Bobby WomackLookin' For A Love Again ... LP
United Artists, 1974. Sealed ... $13.99
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country and deeper soul modes, yet ready to take on the mainstream as well – and the tracks also still feature lots of his wonderful guitar work, which inflects the music with these deeper feelings that really holds strong – and definitely lives up to the initial charm of Womack's first few records on Minit. Most of the set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but as a place where Womack was travelling from LA – a fact that definitely shows in the mix of rootsy elements and tighter construction – yet still handled here without any of the cliches that so many other artists might hit when recording on that scene. Titles include the killer funky stepper "You're Welcome Stop On By", which has been sampled and covered many times over the years – plus "I Don't Wanna Be Hurt By Ya Love Again", "Let It Hang Out", "Lookin For A Love", "Doing It My Way", and "Don't Let Me Down". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing! Cover has a cut corner.)

Bobby WomackSafety Zone ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
Sweet funky soul from the great Bobby Womack – a record that mixes Bobby's roots with some of the more righteous modes he picked up on Across 110th Street – blended here in a style that's completely sublime! The record was one of Womack's first to be entirely recorded on the west coast – and has these core grooves that come from the great Wah Wah Watson on guitar and Sonny Burke on keyboards – both players who bring in sharp edges, but can also lay back in a groove as well – helping Bobby perfectly balance funky impulses and mellower moments throughout. There's a sophistication here that really shows the continuing growth of Womack as a musical visionary – and titles include "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", "Daylight", "Love Ain't Something You Can Get For Free", "I Feel A Groove Coming On", and versions of "I Wish It Would Rain" and "Something You Got". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has some wear, staining, a bent corner and an unglued top seam.)
