Great, but obscure albums to purchase

Here are three recordings which may not be timeless "greats," but neither do they deserve to be out of print.
1) Charles Lloyd Quartet: Of Course, Of Course
Lloyd's second record for Columbia made in the mid 60's. A tight, working quartet including Ron Carter, Tony Williams, and Hungarian Gabor Szabo on guitar. All originals.
2) Don Pullen/George Adams Quartet: Song Everlasting
This is my favorite recording by this band and I can't understand why Blue Note dropped it from the catalog. I've been trying to find their first Blue Note "BreakThrough" which has been widely reccommended and haven't located it.
Joe Turner/Count Basie: The Bosses
A very good time was had by all including a Norman Granz all star sextet with Harry Edison, Zoot Sims, Ray Brown and Eddie Davis. Joe Turner in fine shouting form. Don't know if this is out of print, but I never see it mentioned anywhere and it is really a good time record.
