1965 album reissued on 180 gram vinyl ! The 1965 album I Put a Spell on You features some of Nina Simone's best known songs. She covers the Screamin' Jay Hawkins' song "I Put a Spell on You". The original version gave the song an ironic theme, but Simone transformed it into a thrilling love song, complete with horns and strings. It had become one of her most well-known songs. She used the title for her 1992 autobiography "I Put A Spell On You".

RARE : Super Analog Pressing « The New State of the Art » HQ 180 Disc, Sheffield Lab ST 200 Sealed
Description: 
Musicians : Thelma Houston (vocals), Larry Knechtel, Lincoln Mayorga, Mike Melvoin, Michael Omartian (keyboards), Larry Carlton, Dean Parks (guitar), Reinie Press (bass), Chuck Findley, Paul Hubinon (trumpet), Dick Hyde, Lew McCreary (trombone), Jim Horn, Tom Scott (saxophone), Richard Perissi (french horn), Morgan Ames, Jim Gilstrap, Myrna Matthews, Marti McCall, Lisa Roberts, Jackie Ward (background vocals). This is one of the most lasting and continually interesting albums ever made. Sheffield Labs, a mastering plant was the site of this recording. For 2 days Thelma and a handful of top-notch studio musicians (Pressure Cooker) sang and played Live direct to a lacquer master disc, non-stop, no mixing, no over-dubs, no edits. This prodigious effort is the most successful audiophile release of all time. Being a direct to disc recording means even an unsophistacted ear can hear the dynamics and even some minor flubs in the band. The lack of multiple tracks edited until close to perfection, is a welcome plus. This is a must have for any serious collector. This is the second edition of The Rare Direct To Disc LP Thelma Houston "I've Got The Music In Me" Mastered From The Live Stereo Tape Recorded During The Original Direct To Disc Session. The First Pressing Of This Title Is On The TAS Super Disc List Extremely sought after.

Description: 
If there could be an album that would be described as quintessential Roy Ayers, it would be "A Tear to A Smile", the 1975 release by Roy Ayers Ubiquity. This album definitely covers more of the funk side of Roy Ayers, with his sprinkle of melodic chords and vocals. With help from usual suspects like Wayne Garfield, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and Edwin Birdsong, this album is vocal heavy, which may not have been well accepted by jazz purists, but by this time in Roy’s evolution, he had integrated jazz, R&B, soul, and funk into his ubiquitous sound, either you were to get with it or get left behind. Roy’s sound in general is to be described as fusion, but few of his albums demonstrate this better than A Tear to a Smile. If you are one who is not too familiar with Roy Ayers, this is a great album that encompasses his sound as Roy Ayers Ubiquity. Not only does this album give a great description of the sound of Roy Ayers Ubiquity, it also displays the philosophy and message that Roy Ayers often promotes through his lyrics. Sometimes, we get so rapped up in the melodic sound of the genius, that we forget how inspirational his lyrics are, and how progressive the message was and still is. The constant of peace, love, and unity are thick throughout Roy’s career, and this album is no different.

Description: 
“Stronger Than Pride” is one of Sade's best albums. An international hit that lit-up the Pop, Jazz and R&B charts around the world. The multi-platinum album includes 3 smash singles - “Paradise”, “Nothing Can Come Between Us” and “Turn My Back on You”. It’s impossible to separate the allure of this sultry music from the persona of the woman singing it. Sade truly is an international superstar ! Three years after leaving their fans begging for more, Sade created "Stronger Than Pride" one of their best works ever. An international hit that lit up the Pop, Jazz and R&B charts. The platinum selling album includes sensual Brazilian bossa nova inspired acoustic material as well as three Billboard charted singles - the #1 smash "Paradise", "Nothing can Come Between Us" and "Turn My Back On You". On “Stronger Than Pride” the band creates the perfect groove for romance and fulfills the promise of their stunning debut with a continued sense of sophistication and understated elegance, two hallmarks of the Sade sound. "Stronger Than Pride" exudes a greater confidence than the first two records. Stuart Matthewman on guitar and sax, Paul Spencer Denman on bass and Andrew Hale on keyboards are talented musicians with a distinctive character, the perfect vehicle for Sade's mature, lush, cool and composed vocal lead. It's impossible to separate the allure of this sultry music from the persona of the woman singing it, for Sade truly is a femme fatale of mythic dimension.

Description: 
With a restrained yet potent funk band and a few cameos from luminaries in the jazz world, Al Jarreau gets plenty of opportunities to wrap his rubbery, ever-changing timbre around an agreeable collection of tunes, the majority of which he wrote or co-wrote. Of the cover tunes, Jarreau completely transforms Kenny Loggins' "Wait a Little While", the Beatles' "She's Leaving Home" and Otis Redding's "Dock of the Bay" into personal vehicles for vocal acrobatics, and his own "Fly" revives his uncanny ability to skitter and sail along with a Brazilian-based rhythm track. Freddie Hubbard puts in a soulful guest appearance on flugelhorn on Dave Frishberg's "I'm Home" and applies a more outgoing obligato to "Fly"; Lee Ritenour and Paulinho Da Costa also make appearances on the record. While Jarreau could still be technically classified as a jazz singer at this point, he is really inhabiting a zone of his own. Half Speed Masters Cut by Stan Ricker, JVC Imported Pressing 1979

Description: 
One of the tastiest concoctions of the mid-'70s jazz-fusion era, "Chain Reaction" finds the Crusaders at the top of their form. The compositions are both accessible and memorable, and the playing is uniformly excellent. Guitarist Larry Carlton delivers some of his finest licks and funkified rhythm work. Wayne Henderson shows there is a place in fusion for the trombone. Wilton Felder does double duty, delivering smoking saxophone lines and funky bass riffs. Joe Sample's Fender Rhodes piano provides a solid chordal foundation and great solos. And the stickman, Stix Hooper, keeps the groove solid. The band employs a variety of rhythms and tempos, and gives the members plenty of room to strut their individual and collective stuff. In fact, "collective" may be the key word here, for this is the sound of a band, not just a group of guys thrown together for a recording session. "Chain Reaction" was one of the albums that helped lure young, rock and soul-oriented listeners over to check out the jazz side, and should not be missed by those interested in the more accessible, funky side of fusion.

Afro Cuban jazz, in which the interpretation and rhythms of swing and bebop are united with all imaginable rhythms from Brazil and the Caribbean, was label enough to describe a peaceful yet exciting and revolutionary music. At first glance it appears that in his album "Stone Soul" the Cuban percussionist Mongo Santamaria just took a handful of popular songs from pop and soul and 'translated' them into his own musical language. So far so good : but the enthusiasm and joy with which the band performs is anything but ordinary. Once the threshold for a potent Latin combo has been overcome with meaty winds ("See Saw"), Sonny Fortune on the alto sax storms ahead along rhythm & blues tracks and breaks out with hectic cleft licks on his own headstrong path. Incited by crisp percussion, one can experience how traditional music is combined with a musician’s own ideas to create completely new music.
