The Story of Bethlehem Records
Bethlehem has to be one of the strangest independent jazz labels of the fifties. It had no point of view in terms of a style of jazz or a type of jazz artist that it favored. It recorded vocalists ranging from Chris Connor to Nina Simone and jazz artists from Duke Ellington to Charles Mingus to the unjustly obscure Herbie Nichols and Booker Little. Roland Kirk’s first album was among its releases. This blog kicks off the story of the label with a gallery of covers from its 10” LP series.

I wish I had a record by the Roots to spin as a celebration of today’s root canal.

Man, screw Surge. I want Pepsi Blue back…

It’d probably be gross as hell with my young adult tastes but that was my childhood drink.

Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five [Star Performance] (198?)
Jordan’s late Decca period, some great stuff on this one. Really, though, Louis Jordan was much better compiled for the CD market. I am fighting an uphill battle by sticking to my preferred format.

The Byrds’ Greatest Hits (1967)
I am just not that big of a fan of the early Byrds, so this greatest hits abum was needed. Took me a while to find a mono original, though.

What about the later Byrds? I find the post-Sweetheart material of McGuinn & Co. to be solid but rarely as great as the inspired chirps of the early jingle-jangle group.

I don’t know later Byrds well enough to comment, but I will say that, out of the studio albums I’ve heard, Sweetheart of the Rodeo is the only one that I go back to without resistance. I haven’t even heard the Notorious Byrd Brothers before.
