John Coltrane & Don Cherry - The Avant-Garde
1966 Blue & Green Label With Black Fan Logo Stereo Original Housed In A Laminated Cover. Recorded In 1960. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “This Album Is Rightfully Co-Credited To Don Cherry (Trumpet), Who Ably Trades Blows With John Coltrane (Tenor/Soprano Sax) Throughout. The Avant-Garde Also Boasts The Debut Studio Recording Of Coltrane Playing Soprano Sax -- On "The Blessing" -- In Addition To His Continuing Advancements On Tenor. Although These Tracks Were Recorded During The Summer Of 1960, They Remained Shelved For Nearly Six Years. Joining Coltrane And Cherry Are Essentially The Rest Of The Members Of The Ornette Coleman Quartet, Ed Blackwell (Drums) And Charlie Haden (Bass) On "Cherryco" And "The Blessing," As Well As Percy Heath (Bass) On The Remaining Three Selections. This Is Fitting, As Over Half Of The Album Consists Of Early Coleman Compositions. Coltrane's Integration Into This Band Works With Some Extraordinarily Fresh Results. Neither Cherry Nor Coltrane Makes Any Radical Departures On This Album; However, It's The Ability Of Each To Complement The Other Both In Terms Of Modal Style And -- Perhaps More Importantly -- Texture That Lends Heavily To The Success Of These Sides. Cherry's Brisk And Somewhat Nasal Intonations On "The Blessing" Mimic Those Of Miles Davis, Albeit With Shorter Flourishes And Heavily Improvised Lines. When Combined With Coltrane's Well-Placed -- If Not Somewhat Reserved -- Solos, The Mutual Value Of Both Is Dramatically Increased. Blackwell -- The Only Other Musician Besides Cherry And Coltrane To Be Featured On Every Track -- Provides Some Non-Conventional Percussive Accompaniment. His Contributions To "The Blessing" And Workout On The Aptly Titled "Focus On Sanity" Are Primal.” Lindsay Planer, AMG....more

Vega, Suzanne - Suzanne Vega
Sealed 1985 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve And Gold Promo Stamp On Back Cover. Pressed On Quiex Type Pure Virgin Vinyl. “Though Early Comparisons Were Made To Joni Mitchell, Suzanne Vega's True Antecedents Were Janis Ian And Leonard Cohen. Like Ian, She Sings With A Precise, Frequently Half-Spoken Phrasing That Gives Her Lyrics An Intensity That Seems To Suggest An Unsteady Control Consciously Held Over Emotional Chaos. Like Cohen, Vega Observes The World In Poetic Metaphor, Her Cold Urban Landscapes Reflecting A Troubled Sense Of Love And Loss. The Key Track Is "Small Blue Thing," In Which The Singer Pictures Herself As An Object "Like A Marble/Or An Eye," "Made Of China/Made Of Glass," "Lost Inside Your Pocket," And "Turning In Your Hand." The Sharply Picked Acoustic Guitar And Other Isolated Musical Elements Echo The Closely Observed Scenes -- Everything Seems To Be In Tight Close-Up And Sharp Focus. Often, The Singer Seems To Be Using The Songs To Measure An Emotional Distance; Sometimes, As In "Marlene On The Wall," She Observes Her Own Actions From A Remove. In "Freeze Tag," She Tells A Companion, "I Will Be Dietrich/And You Can Be Dean"; In "Marlene," A Poster Of The Aloof Movie Star "Watches From The Wall," Observing The Singer's Succession Of Lovers, And She Tries To Emulate Her Heroine's Persona, Telling The Current One, "Even If I Am In Love With You/All This To Say, What's It To You?" The Ten Songs On Suzanne Vega Constitute The Self-Analysis Of A Young Woman Who Desires Possession Without Offering Commitment; No Wonder That, Upon Its Release, It Was Taken To Heart By Young Women Across The Country And In Europe.” William Ruhlmann, AMG....more

Springsteen, Bruce - Greetings From Asbury Park N.J.
Rare 1973 Original With The KC Prefix On The Jacket And Labels Housed In A Die-Cut Gimmick Cover. 1A/2A Stampers (Probably The Lowest That Exist. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed). Jacket Is VG+. 5 Stars! “Bruce Springsteen's Debut Album Found Him Squarely In The Tradition Of Bob Dylan: Folk-Based Tunes Arranged For An Electric Band Featuring Piano And Organ (Plus, In Springsteen's Case, 1950s-Style Rock & Roll Tenor Saxophone Breaks), Topped By Acoustic Guitar And A Husky Voice Singing Lyrics Full Of Elaborate, Even Exaggerated Imagery. But Where Dylan Had Taken A World-Weary, Cynical Tone, Springsteen Was Exuberant. His Street Scenes Could Be Haunted And Tragic, As They Were In "Lost In The Flood," But They Were Still Imbued With Romanticism And A Youthful Energy. Asbury Park Painted A Portrait Of Teenagers Cocksure Of Themselves, Yet Bowled Over By Their Discovery Of The World. It Was Saved From Pretentiousness (If Not Preciousness) By Its Sense Of Humor And By The Careful Eye For Detail That Kept Even The Most High-Flown Language Rooted. Like The Lyrics, The Arrangements Were Busy, But The Melodies Were Well Developed And The Rhythms, Pushed By Drummer Vincent Lopez, Were Breakneck.” William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide....more

Tchaikovsky / Ansermet - Sleeping Beauty
Sealed, Out Of Print 3LP All Analogue Mastered 180gm Pure Virgin Vinyl Set Housed In A Laminated Box. His Symphonies Are Ballets, His Ballets Are Symphonies; Such Has Often Been Said About Tchaikovsky's Lengthy Dance Compositions. This Opinion Is Not Entirely Due To The Fact That These Works Had To Please The Audience Without Being Danced To After Diaghilev's Legendary Ballet Company Was Dissolved. Rather More, Tchaikovsky's Instrumental And Incidental Music Is Pervaded By Movement And Dance Rhythms That Act As A Musical Scaffolding. Almost As Legendary As The Incomparable Heritage Of Russian Music Is The Reputation Of The Orchestre De La Suisse Romande, Whose Recordings Are Famed For Their Lush And Saturated Sound Coloring. Conductor Ernest Ansermet Transforms The Score Into A Veritable Firework Of Sound, Without Ever Straining After Cheap Effects By Means Of A Thunderous Sound; The Strings Are Clean And Warm In All Registers, The Brass Volleys Blare Out Keenly, And The Percussion Is Dauntlessly Resolute. This Performance And Decca's Customary Excellent Sound Recording Render Great Homage To This Music. All The More Reason To Be Glad That This Particular "Sleeping Beauty" Has Been Awakened At Long Last....more
