Dorothy Ashby- Dorothy's Harp / The Rubaiyat of Dorothy Ashby

Here are two nice late-period LPs from jazz/funk Harpist, Dorothy Ashby. Sweet stuff. Must admit, I'm not always wild about the vocals on The Rubaiayat, but the arrangements are positively incredible.

"The Windmills of Your Minds"

"The Moving Finger"

*In looking, I also found a good download link for Dorothy Ashby's self-titled 1962 album on Argo over at the Arkadin's Ark blog.

I haven't yet heard her solo Django/Misty album from 1984. Its supposed to be good. Offhand, does anyone know of a good link for that one?
