Tim Eyermann - "Unity" (1977)

This may be one of Tim Eyermann's first recordings, from a now a defunct studio (Juldane Records).  This LP was recorded without the East Coast Offering and so I though it was unique.  I was listening to some Airmen of Note LP when I saw "Tim Eyermann" credited for a solo. So I found out that was where he started his career, and then went solo.  I recently learned from Wikipedia that TE died in 2007 from complications from surgery and lung cancer.  So this started me to find which recordings never were released  I used to listen to his East Coast Offering material when I was in college and really enjoyed their music.
So I found out this "Unity" LP is rare and was able to get one for a reasonable cost through eBay.  However, on Side A, there is a "pop" although muted, still comes through after the Click-Repair processing.  I tried other ways to remove it and was unsuccessful.  At least Side B is okay. There are no credits on Discogs for me to reference (again it is rare) and I uploaded my cleaned up LP cover scan to Discogs.  I hope you enjoy...

Lani Hall - "Sun Down Lady" (1972)

Lani Hall - Sun Down Lady (1972)

I received a request to rip this LP and looked for a while for a good condition LP on eBay.  I was surprised that this album is still out of print and not available on CD anymore (it was a very limited release).
Of course many of you know her as the lead vocalist for Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 (and Brasil '77?)
Later she married Herb Alpert in the 80's...
They have released two albums together (at least).  They can be purchased on Amazon "I Feel You" in 2011 and "Anything Goes" in 2009.
