Jive FiveComplete United Artists Recordings – I'm A Happy Man ... CD
EMI, 1960s. Used ... $11.99
A great little album of group soul – recorded by indie label favorites The Jive Five, and just about their only album for a big label. Horace Ott produced and arranged, and he nicely takes the group's earlier doo wop style into a 60s harmony groove – adding in some arrangements that have a bit more of a kick and a northern groove, and helping the group come up with some tasty little numbers filled with hooks and riffs that let them still show off their vocal skills. Titles include "I'm A Happy Man", "Prove Every Word You Say", "I Remember When", "Hang On The Corner", "A Bench In The Park", "Falling Tears", and "Ha Ha". CD

John AddisonBridge Too Far (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1977. New Copy 2CDs ... $43.99
One of the greatest 70s moments from film composer John Addison – music scored for an all-star movie that was maybe a bit too all-star in the long run – but which features Addison really knocking it out of the park with the music! The vibe is more like the best 60s war dramas than you'd guess from the date – orchestrations that mix together bold passages of action with some more subtle dramatic moments – woodwinds and strings used by Addison with effortless ease, and often some nicely dark touches lurking in the deep backgrounds! Titles include "Human Roadblock", "Nijmegen Bridge", "Underground Resistance", "Before The Holocaust", "A Dutch Rhapsody", and "March Of The Paratroopers". 2CD edition – the original soundtrack album, plus a huge amount of bonus tracks – 35 more numbers from the original film recordings, wrapped up with very detailed notes as well!

All Star DrummersCats Go Wild ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
"America's Greatest Drummers" in a percussion spectacular with a lot of loud exotic sounding tracks like "Boka Butu", "Ja Ki Lin", "Noma", and "Bambu". I don't know if we'd use the word "greatest" in describing the drummers – especially since the list of talents includes names like Sol Gubin and Don Lamond – but the set does have some nice playing by our man Charlie Persip, and isn't too bad from a lounge percussion perspective.

One of John Barry's earliest scores for Bond – when his style was nice and raw, and when the Bond theme couldn't be heard enough throughout the course of the movie!

John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/NilssonMidnight Cowboy (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... $43.99
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". But also, Barry acted as the overall music director for the film – and used some tracks from the hip group Elephant's Memory, plus others by The Groop – but offbeat acts who really fit the spirit of the film. The record's almost worth it just for the cut "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! This stunning 2CD set features a massive 42 tracks in all – the original album, which features bonus tracks by Barry, Lesley Miller, Nilsson, and The Groop – plus 23 more tracks from the film score – which really expand on all the cool touches that Barry brought to the instrumentation!

Shirley BasseyGood Bad But Beautiful ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Shirley Bassey is at her mellow best here – 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley BasseyLive In Japan ... LP
United Artists (Japan), 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
A rare Japanese-only set from Shirley Bassey – a 2LP set that features some great jazzy backing from the group of Nobuo Hara and His Sharps & Flats! The sound is bold and brassy – just right for Shirley's voice – and given the live, acoustic setting of the record, the album's almost got more of a 60s feel than a 70s one – especially on the tracks that have Shirley reprising older hits. The recording leaves plenty of space for enthusiastic audience response, and also features a bit of interplay with the crowd as well – plus a set list of titles that includes "Going Going Gone", "Diamonds Are Forever", "Without You", "Goldfinger", "Sing", "Yesterday When I Was Young", "Never Never Never", "Something", and "All That Love Went To Waste".

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah BandLet's Make Up & Be Friendly ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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".

The tracks are a blend of disco, soul, and funk – with more than a bit of the horn-heavy groove that earns the group their "brass construction" name. Titles include "Movin", "Good News", "Changin", "What's On Your Mind", "Walkin The Line", "Ha Cha Cha (Funktion)", "Give & Take", "Help Yourself", "LOVEU", and "The Message". CD

Bob BrookmeyerKansas City Revisited (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Pure Pleasure (UK), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 44.99
A very unusual session – especially considering Bob Brookmeyer's more modernist modes of the 50s! This album has Bob going back to roots you might not guess that he had – picking up bits of a Kansas City sound that (as he tells in the liner notes) clearly inspired him in the early days, and which is presented here surprisingly well by a septet that includes Bob on valve trombone, Al Cohn and Paul Quinichette on tenor, Nat Pierce on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Addison Farmer on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all playing long and lean on some real Basie-styled numbers. Quinichette's presence really sets the tone for the record, and seems to pull out earthy qualities in the other players that we didn't even know they had – and on 2 numbers, Big Miller delivers some bluesy vocals as well. Titles include "Jumping At The Woodside", "A Blues", "Blue & Sentimental", and "Moten Swing". LP, Vinyl record album

2 larger group gems from trombonist Bob Brookmeyer – both of them great! First up is Kansas City Revisited – a very unusual session, especially considering Bob Brookmeyer's more modernist modes of the 50s! This album has Bob going back to roots you might not guess that he had – picking up bits of a Kansas City sound that (as he tells in the liner notes) clearly inspired him in the early days, and which is presented here surprisingly well by a septet that includes Bob on valve trombone, Al Cohn and Paul Quinichette on tenor, Nat Pierce on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Addison Farmer on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all playing long and lean on some real Basie-styled numbers.

Titles include "Jumping At The Woodside", "A Blues", "Blue & Sentimental", and "Moten Swing". The second album on the set is Stretching Out – a 1958 date recorded under the leadership of Zoot Sims and Brookmeyer! The album features the Sims-Bob Brookmeyer Octet, a tight little group with a touch of modern, blowing here with ample solo space for all the best players! Lineup includes Charlie Persip on drums, Hank Jones on piano, Eddie Jones on bass, and Freddie Green on guitar – in addition to the frontline players Zoot Sims on tenor, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Harry Edison on trumpet, and Al Cohn on tenor and baritone sax. Titles include "Stretching Out", "Now Will You Be Good", "King Porter", and "Bee Kay". CD

Bob Brookmeyer & Bill EvansIvory Hunters – Double Barrelled Piano ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1959. Used ... $11.99
A compelling album of twin-piano lines – one in which Bill Evans and Bob Brookmeyer play head-to-head, in a spiraling modernist style that brings out the best in each player! Although Brookmeyer's best known as a trombonist, he's pretty great here on piano – and the album's a real treasure from his legendary late 50s years – a time when Bob was really opening up tremendously in his music! The album separates out the players via stereo – with Bill Evans in the right channel and Brookmeyer in the left – and the format usually has one player in a rhythm groove while the other solos over the top. The bass of Percy Heath and drums of Connie Kay complete the group – and titles include longish versions of "As Time Goes By", "I Got Rhythm", "The Man I Love", and "The Way You Look Tonight". CD

Spencer Davis GroupTaking Out Time – The Complete Recordings 1967 to 1969 (With Their New Face On/Round The Mulberry Bush/Funky/BBC Sessions/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
United Artists/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99
Great work from the second chapter of The Spencer Davis Group – the time immediately after Steve Winwood left to form Traffic, and the combo stepped forward into some even headier music of their own! This period of the SDG isn't nearly as well known as their early hits – and the box set is a really surprising revelation overall – music that has some of the R&B currents of the earlier group, but which is also infused with a headier, trippier style too – not just in the instrumentation, but in the way the records are put together – with cool elements that space things out slightly, but never get too indulgent! The mix is a bit like that on the earliest work of The Move – or that shift that Small Faces were taking after moving to the Immediate label – and as with previous work from the Spencer Davis Group, there's as much great Hammond on the tunes as there is guitar, thanks to the talents of new member Eddie Hardin. Some of the best cuts almost hit a freakbeat mode – with a very cool mix of mod and psych – and the 3CD set features the full albums Funky and With Their New Face On – plus material from the Round The Mulberry Bush soundtrack, lots more singles, some BBC sessions, and even some alternate and unreleased tracks too. 68 tracks in all – titles that include "Letters From Edith", "Time Seller", "Taking Out Time", "After Tea", "Sanity Inspector", "What A Way To Die", "Firefly", "Magpie", "Groove Extra", "The Girls Song", "Don't Want You No More", "Der Wassermann", and "Picture Of Heaven".

United Artists, 1962. Sealed ... $19.99
A brilliant album from Kenny Dorham – one of his more far-reaching efforts, with the expansive compositional style that he started bringing to some of his Blue Note work of the early 60s. The record features a group with Jackie McLean on alto, Bobby Timmons on piano, Teddy Smith on bass, and JC Moses on drums – all working with Kenny in a slightly Latin tinged mode that features some really shimmering trumpet work! The record features a stunning 3 part reading of McLean's haunting tune "Melanie" (done under his name on the album A Fickle Sonance) – plus the tracks "Prelude", "El Matador", "Smile", and "There Goes My Heart".

Duke Ellington/Charles Mingus/Max RoachMoney Jungle (Douglas) ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years! The real success factor here is Ellington, who was hitting a point in his career when he was really beginning to experiment again – as you'll hear in the beautifully angular piano lines that he lays next to Mingus' bass and Roach's lively drums. The set's nearly all originals, and titles include "Money Jungle", "Le Fleurs Africaines", and "Wig Wise". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Duke Ellington/Louis ArmstrongParis Blues – Original Soundtrack ... LP
United Artists, 1961. Sealed ... $16.99
We've always loved Duke Ellington's soundtracks, and this is one of his best! The score is a moody introspective one, written for a 1961 film that starred Paul Newman as a frustrated jazz musician living in Paris. The "Paris Blues" theme is a dark, somber composition that is supposedly Newman's masterpiece as a jazz writer – and it works beautifully with the film's themes of frustration and unfulfilled desire. Ellington's at his best here, and apart from the main theme, the score also has great versions of classics like "Mood Indigo" and "Take The A Train", plus originals like "Nite", "Wild Man Moore", "Guitar Amour", and "Paris Stairs". Also features Louis Armstrong on one track! LP, Vinyl record album

The second solo album by Wynder K Frog – a groovy Brit organist who's probably best known for his work with Traffic, but who's really opening up here, laying down some wonderfully jazzy and funky instrumentals with a fuzzy Hammond sound that's really great! Although the set was recorded in the UK, the best cuts have a soulful crossover sound that feels like it should have been recorded during one of the Cadet Concept sessions in Chicago at the same time. One cut has vocals, but the best are the instrumentals – like "Into the Fire", "Howl In Wolf's Clothing", "Hot Salt Beef", "Cool Hand Stanley", and "Why Am I Treated So Bad". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Neil InnesHow Sweet To Be An Idiot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Grapefruit (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
An unusual solo album from Neil Innes – a set recorded in the space between his time in Bonzo Dog Band and The Rutles! As with both of those groups, Innes shows an amazing talent for recording a song that sounds straight, but which has a really offbeat vibe – sometimes song-style parodies that have all the chops of an original – other times more goofy material that really shows why Innes would end up being such a great comedic partner with Eric Idle! The instrumentation on the set is great – thanks in part to the lead guitar and organ lines of Ollie Halsall – and titles include "Momma Bee", "Immortal Invisible", "Topless A Go Go", "Feel No Shame", "Singing A Song Is Easy", and "How Sweet To Be An Idiot". CD version adds in 10 more bonus singles – including "Recycled Vinyl Blues", "The Age Of Desperation", "Oyster", "What Noise Annoys A Noisy Oyster", and "Lie Down & Be Counted". CD

Milt JacksonBags' Opus ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Good+ ... $6.99
One of the greatest Milt Jackson albums ever – thanks to an incredible lineup that features Art Farmer on trumpet and Benny Golson on tenor – both of whom give the record a lot more edge than usual for Jackson! The set's almost a maturation of the earliest modern grooves that Milt forged in his earlier sessions for Blue Note and Prestige – a sound that comes across here with a lot more confidence and focus than some of his 50s Savoy sides – with a sharper, edgier quality that comes from Golson's great arrangements for the record. Milt's vibes have a really chromatic feel here, and a sound that's almost louder than usual – and the rest of the group features Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Connie Kay on drums. Titles include "Blues For Diahann", "I Remember Clifford", "Thinking Of You", and "Whisper Not". LP, Vinyl record album

Jay & The AmericansCapture The Moment ... LP
United Artists, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
Jay & The Americans make a surprisingly great shift here – moving into material that has a bit more of a roots rock vibe – which makes the album sound a lot deeper than most of their previous sets! The sound is maybe slightly out of time – a touch folk rock, with a vibe that would have been especially relevant in 1966 – yet it still does a lot for the group, and helps Jay find vocal territory that really fits the sound of his style. There's also one interesting bit of trivia here, too – a pre-Steely Dan Walter Becker and Donald Fagan provide arrangements on a few tracks – in a set of titles that include "Sleepy", "I'll Be Leaving Her Tomorrow", "Is There A World Without You", "Thoughts I've Taken To Bed", "No I Don't Know Her", "He Loves The Feeling", and "Learnin How To Fly".

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. Titles include "This Little Love", "What's Right For You", "Comes Love", "Lazy Afternoon", "I'd Know You Anywhere", and "It Isn't So Good". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1967. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best! The groove here is really unique – a spare blend of bossa influences, jazzy organ lines, and wordless vocals that are sung beautifully by French singers Nicole Croisille and Pierre Barouh – and although a mainstream success, the record was the initial force behind the legendary Saravah imprint that Barouh would form later, to record a wide range of groundbreaking work in a variety of genres. But history aside, the music here is plenty – and from the very first note the whole soundtrack grabs you with a sense of warmth and sentiment that defy description – modes never heard before in the soundtrack world, and which really broke the mold from Hollywood conventions! Titles include the seminal bossa number "Samba Saravah", plus "A Man & A Woman", "Today It's You", "In Our Shadow", "At 200 MPH", and "Stronger Than Us". LP, Vinyl record album

BGO/United Artists (UK), 1963/1966. New Copy ... $8.99
2 brilliant albums from Garnet Mimms – one of the greatest soul singers of the 60s, and an artist you can never have enough of! Garnet's albums from the 60s are all great – and unlike his contemporaries, he always recorded full LPs with all great songs, a wealth of original material, and not a bit of filler. This means that the set's got 26 tracks that may well be a "best of" for Garnet – as each track sparkles as much as the next, with Garnet's roughly-hewn vocals stretching out over sweet uptown arrangements by Jerry Ragovoy and Garry Sherman. We couldn't hope for a better batch of 60s soul tunes – and titles include "Don't Change Your Heart", "Looking For You", "It's Just A Matter Of Time", "One Girl", "Baby Don't You Weep", "So Close", "Anytime You Want Me", "There Goes My Baby", "A Little Bit Of Soap", "Quiet Place", "Cry To Me", "Until You Were Gone", "Anytime You Want Me", "Thinkin", and "Prove it To Me".

Noel PointerHold On ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note, 1976. Used ... $14.99
Early work from Noel Pointer – recorded in a smooth, soulful mode with plenty of help on arrangements and production from Dave Grusin! Like Dave's best work from the time, the set's got a feel that's tight, but never as commercial or cloying as mainstream fusion a few years later – and Noel's sweet work on electric violin is set up nicely with keyboards from Dave, guitar from Eric Gale, drums from Steve Gadd, and percussion from Ralph MacDonald. Noel sings a bit on the set, but even better are the vocals from Patti Austin, Gwen Guthrie, Yolanda McCullough, and others – who flesh out the backgrounds on some tunes. Titles include "Staying With You", "Movin In", "Superwoman", "Stardust Lady", "Hold On", and the extended "Roots Suite", based on Quincy Jones music for the show! CD

✨✧ Bill PottsBye Bye Birdie ... LP
United Artists, 1963. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A great little jazz version of the score to the musical Bye Bye Birdie – one that we love for its original tunes, and which really lends itself to jazzy interpretation! Arranger Bill Potts really gets at the spirit of the original score, but also opens things up nicely as a jazz solo vehicle – using top shelf players who include Phil Woods on tenor, Billy Costa on piano, Willie Dennis on trombone, Gene Quill on clarinet, and Clark Terry on trumpet – all of whom get some nice space to step out and solo amidst the larger arrangements! Titles include "Kids", "The Closer", "I've Got A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Baby Talk To Me", and "One Last Kiss". LP, Vinyl record album

Carlo RustichelliAvanti (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy ... $24.99
An American film – directed by Billy Wilder and starring Jack Lemmon – but one with a distinctly Italian-styled soundtrack, thanks to the music of Carlo Rustichelli! Rustichelli scores the film with a style that's quite like his early 60s work for Italian films – warmly romantic, with some nice old school touches – all served up in a nice blend of light strings, easygoing rhythms, and some moody touches on keyboards that almost feel like theremin! Tracks are mostly short, some of them sprightly – to fit the comedic mood – and a few have some more traditionally Italian themes too. Titles include "Cha Cha Cha", "The Morgue", "Miss Piggot", "Coffee & Croissants", "A Burial Front The Sea", "Permesso", and "Wendell & Pamela". CD features 5 bonus tracks too! CD

Zoot SimsZoot Sims In Paris (Japanese pressing) ... CD
United Artists (Japan), 1961. Used ... $19.99
A rare gem from Zoot Sims – a slightly obscure session issued in the early 60s by United Artists! Producer Alan Douglas put together the record – and as with most of the Douglas-produced albums of the period, the set's got that little "something extra" that makes it stand apart from a lot of other albums by the artist from the time. The whole package isn't too complicated, and just features Zoot blowing easy with a laidback (unnamed) quartet in what seems to be a live session. The solos come fast and free, and with a strong uncluttered sensibility that you don't often hear on other Sims records from the same period. Titles include "Zoot's Blues", "On the Alamo", "A Flat Blues", and "You Go To My Head". CD

Ike & Tina TurnerFeel Good ... LP

Feel Good is a tight little set that shows Ike Turner sitting equally on the fence between funk and rock – sometimes kickin into the kind of tightly snapping rhythms heard on his best late 60s work, at other points strutting into more of a guitar-based groove that he was using for the mainstream audiences a the time! Fortunately, the whole presentation of the record is surprisingly lean – not as much of the hokey styles that you might expect, and a powerfully packed approach that still has Tina's vocals belting out at the front of the mix. Titles include "Black Coffee", "The Chopper", "I Like It", "Feel Good", "Kay Got Laid Joe Got Paid", "If I Knew Then What I Know Now", and "Bolic". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby WomackI Don't Know What The World Is Coming To ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The cover and the title are a great illustration of the growth of Bobby Womack on this classic 70s set – a mode of presentation that's maybe a bit more badass than before, without the down-home image of Bobby holding his guitar! Some aspects of the record are plenty darn righteous – and live up to the social commentary of the title – and these are mixed with Womack's rootsy vocals in a way that's really unique – almost as if a Marvin Gaye message album was crafted down in Memphis or Muscle Shoals. Some bits of the record are almost blackploitation funk in their use of wicked keyboards, sharp guitar, and larger charts – and the tunes blend together in this very cool way that really makes the whole set fit together nicely. Womack's voice is fantastic, as always – and titles include "Put Something Down On It", "What's Your World", "Git It", "I Don't Know", "Jealous Love", and 2 very nice "Interlude" tracks!

United Artists/West Side Latino, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Ray Barretto albums of the 60s – a real gem from the pre-Latin Soul years! The album's a clear attempt to cash in on the cash in on the James Bond craze of the time – issued by United Artists, who were releasing the Bond films, but also had Ray under contract during the period too. But despite that simple gimmick, it's a great little set – with a quality level that goes way beyond Bond soundtracks, or the usual from Barretto at the time! The tracks are all hard and groovy, with an excellent jazz feel – and some killer arranging from Ray that's right up there with the work he did for his legendary Charanga Moderna album! You may recognize the song titles – but their versions here are superb, and the album's filled with many many wonderful moments that step out with mad rhythms and great jazzy touches. Titles include "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "OO7", "Search For Vulcan", "Thunderball", and "Goldfinger". Nice "spy" shot of Ray on the cover, too! CD

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! George plays some great electric piano on the record – and other players include Ernie Watts on tenor and flute, and Jay Graydon on guitar – on titles that include "Soul Watcher", "Since You Asked", "Shades Of Joy", "Alcatraz", and "A Little Bit Of Seven".

Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years! The real success factor here is Ellington, who was hitting a point in his career when he was really beginning to experiment again – as you'll hear in the beautifully angular piano lines that he lays next to Mingus' bass and Roach's lively drums. The set's nearly all originals, and titles include "Money Jungle", "Le Fleurs Africaines", and "Wig Wise". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

The record has bits of prepared piano over exotic backings – perhaps not as crazy as some of their albums for Westminster, but still with some good off-beat touches that make the album one of the few that's really worth seeking out by them. Plus, the Exotica arrangements give the piano pair a different sound than usual – a bit less staid, with a pretty nice batch pad groove.

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. Patty Duke sings "Funny Little Butterflies" and "Lonely Little In Between" – and other titles include "Discotheque", "Hold It", "The Girl Is A Girl Is A Girl", and "The Beat". LP, Vinyl record album

The fantastic first album from Hawkwind – a pure moment of genius, from a time when the group had so much to deliver, and hadn't yet succumbed to their own greatness! If you only know later work, the style here is maybe more closely tied to some of the more familiar late 60s modes from the UK – certainly nascent prog and trippy psych elements at play – but, as with Pink Floyd right at the start, these guys are really marking their own territory – in part by their inventive blend of electronics with soaring guitars, driving rhythms, and some especially great touches on alto sax. The whole thing's wonderful – a record that should have been huge at the time, and which has certainly gotten legendary status since then – and titles include "Hurry On Sundown", "The Reason Is", "Be Yourself", "Paranoia (parts 1 & 2)", "See As You Really Are" and "Mirror Of Illusion".

United Artists, 1967. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Even the familiar title hit takes on a bit of a garagey groove – and other tunes show the group's continuing love of deep American roots – served up in a blend of soul, jazz, and R&B that was right out front of the best of the mod generation in the UK! Titles include an incredible take on the Oscar Brown/Max Roach tune "Driver Man" – plus "Stay Around", "Machine", "It's Getting Late", "I Put A Spell On You", "You're Standing By", "Let's Go Get Stoned", and "Pretty Flamingo".

A few tunes are a bit more upbeat, and Jackie Cain sings the lyrics to the title song "Song From Two For The Seesaw".

Like Earth Wind & Fire at their best, War have this way of staying strong and righteous, while still able to hit a hook – jamming one minute, but finding sharp focus the next – and balancing it all out over the course of an album so that there's a sense of depth that really keeps on going once the familiar cuts draw you in. In this case, the familiar cuts are giants – the stunning Latin funk gem "Low Rider", which became an anthem for a generation, and the radio hit "Why Can't We Be Friends" – mixed with other nuggets like the jazzy "Don't No One Get You Down", the funky "Heartbeat", and the cuts "Lotus Blossom", "Smile Happy", "So", and "Leroy's Latin Lament".

Just about every cut is upbeat and funky – rolling along at that low-rider pace that was War's lasting contribution to funk music – and the album features the huge hits "World Is A Ghetto" and "Cisco Kid", two of the brightest spots on radio funk from the 70s – plus classics like "Four Cornered Room", "City Country City", "Where Was You At", and "Beetles In The Bog".

✨✧ Bobby WomackFacts Of Life ... LP
United Artists, 1973. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bobby Womack at the height of his powers – perfectly balancing southern soul roots and 70s soul polish – with an amazing sound that was unlike anyone else at the time! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but has a quality that goes way beyond any of the standard modes from the studio – almost as if Bobby brought a special sort of magic to the sessions that made everyone rise above the sometimes too-familiar work they were giving to the bigger names who were traipsing through the studio. Of course, a big part of the success of the album comes from Womack's amazing vocal delivery – that style that's raspy, yet warm – and which is a perfect fit for the well-penned tunes on the set. Titles include "I'm Through Trying To Prove My Love To You", "Nobody", "If You Can't Give Her Love Give Her Up", and a very cool version of "The Look Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shirley BasseyNobody Does It Like Me/Love Life & Feelings ... CD
United Artists/BGO (UK), 1974/1976. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
2 mid 70s albums from Shirley Bassey – back to back as a 2CD set! Nobody Does It Like Me has shirley working in New York with arrangements by Gene Page and Nick Perito – both of whom give Shirley a sound that's smooth, sophisticated, and sometimes soulful – yet still filled with some of the powerful punch of her earlier British recordings. There's almost echoes of mid 70s Marlena Shaw or Nancy Wilson at times – although the overall feel is a bit more pop in the end. Titles include "Leave A Little Room", "When you Smile", "Davy", "All That Love Went To Waste", "I'm Nothing Without You", and "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life". Love Life & Feelings is a serious British session arranged and conducted by Arthur Greenslade – done in a mood that's often mellow, and which has more dark corners than we'd expect from Shirley – a sad-tinged sound that often features a bit of organ brewing down in the low range of the sound spectrum. Bassey's vocals are surprisingly well suited to the setting, and there's a restraint here that really helps her take one of her best new steps in years – one that's perhaps a bit too late in her career to really make a difference, but which would have really done wonders at the start of the 70s! Titles include "Alone Again Naturally", "Midnight Blue", "Isn't It A Shame", "What I Did For Love", "Born To Lose", "The Hungry Years", "The Way I Want To Touch You", and "You've Made Me So Very Happy".

✨✧ Les DeMerleSpectrum (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Get On Down, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the few albums ever cut by Les DeMerle, one of the hippest drummers of his time – made legendary thanks to legions of samplers and beatheads in the 90s! This is certainly one of Les' best ever efforts – a tight batch of funky big band tracks, with lots of nice grooves, and a very hip lineup that includes Frank Foster, Joe Beck, Chris Woods, Arnie Lawrence, and Charles Sullivan – all coming together in some great tunes that have very unusual rhythms, and a great format that puts the drums in line with the hip playing in the reed section! The album includes Les' famous version of "A Day in the Life", which begins with a monster funky intro – plus the cuts "Fusion – Pro & Con", "Underground", "Deflections 1, 2, 3, & 4", and "Aquarius". This great 2011 edition from Get On Down has 2 bonus tracks: "The Raven" and his version of "I Am The Walrus"! CD
