AnamariAnamari ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good .... $11.99
A pretty obscure singer – with a pretty hip lineup! This is the only album we've ever seen by the singly-named Anamari – but someone at Atlantic must have liked her enough to team her up with players like Art Farmer, Jim Hall, Pete La Roca, and Clark Terry – and to back her up with arrangements by Joel Schulman and Bobby Scott. Anamari's got a style that's mostly jazz, but partly folksy – very deep and dusky, with sadness and introspection as her main calling cards. Titles include "Blue City", "He Was Too Good To Me", "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", "Love Look Away", and "The Nothing Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & green label pressing. Cover has a ding on the back panel at the opening.)

Chris ConnorChris In Person ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good- .... $7.99
A nice little live set from Chris – recorded at the Village Vanguard with a group that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Eddie De Haas on bass, Bill Rubenstein on piano, and Lex Humphries on drums. The setting of the album is similar to some of Chris' work at Bethlehem – very small combo and jazzy, save for the fact that there's a bit more "room" in the recording than on the very close-miked Bethlehem sessions. The approach is a great one to open up another new side of Connor's talents – and the album has a bit tighter feel than Chris' other live album from the same period. Titles include "Round Midnight", "All About Ronnie", "Fine & Dandy", "Misty", "Senor Blues", and "Angel Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label Long Playing Unbreakable pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has some marks that click. Cover has some wear, with some stains on the back.)

Chris ConnorWitchcraft ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good .... $11.99
A lovely side by Chris Connor for Atlantic, recorded not too long after her stint at Bethlehem – where she'd perfected an icy cool style of singing that's still to be matched to this day! The album features larger arrangements by Richard Wess – but still has a light jazzy feel, intimate in approach, despite the larger musical backings. Chris' voice is at once personal and removed – a razor's edge of emotion, repressing some impulses, and opening up surprisingly at other moments. Titles include "Skyscraper Blues", "The Lady Sings The Blues", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "Just In Time", "Baltimore Oriole", and "How Little We Know". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red and purple pinwheel label pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole, but is nice overall.)

Jimmy ScottSource ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint- .... $39.99
A unique moment from the legendary Jimmy Scott – a one-off album cut for Atlantic Records – recorded after his initial 50s fame, and decades before he'd finally get his due, much later in his life! The album's got a style that's a bit more mature than Scott's initial sides – a bit more grown up in approach, even though Jimmy's still got that really unique light tone to his vocals – and arranged by Arif Mardin and William Fischer in a hip blend of jazz and strings – with a slow-moving vibe that's completely mesmerizing. The core instrumentation is by a group that includes Junior Mance on piano, Billy Butler on guitar, and Ron Carter on bass – and titles include "Our Day Will Come", "I Wish I Knew", "This Love Of Mine", and a very moody version of "Exodus". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a few creases.)

Shel SilversteinInside Folk Songs ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good .... $4.99
Pretty weird stuff from Shel Silverstein – best known for "A Boy Named Sue" and his trippy songs for kids, but working here in kind of a stoned-out, post-beatnik folksy mode. The songs all have Shel's wild wit and biting humor – and although many just feature Shel on vocals and guitar, there's kind of a hipster jazz feel to the way in which he carries them off. Wild, gruff and amazing! Titles include "Bury Me In My Shades", "Never Bite A Married Woman In The Thigh", The Unicorn", "It Does Not Pay To Be Hip", "The Slitheree-Dee", "Beans Taste Fine", "25 Minutes To Go", "Have Another Espresso". LP, Vinyl record album

New Oscar Brown JrBrother Where Are You ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth! Brown's still a hell of a songwriter, and one with a very socially-conscious eye – sharper here than before, with lots of comments on the changes in society in the 70s, mixed with a few more heartfelt, personal moments too. There's still a bit of jazz in the mix – thanks to work from Seldon Powell on reeds, and Joe Sample on keyboards – and arrangements are by old friends Floyd Morris, the underground Chicago soul genius – and Sivuca, best known for his Brazilian music, but a great choice here to expand the groove. Brown wrote all the tunes on the record – and titles include "From My Window", "Like A Flower", "Brother Where Are YOu", ""The Lone Ranger", "If You Come Back", and "The Joneses".

New Earl ColemanLove Songs ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great return to form for vocalist Earl Coleman – a singer who'd recorded earlier in the bop years, but who makes a rare 60s appearance here on a soulful set for Atlantic Records! Coleman's got a rich voice that's somewhere between Johnny Hartman and Billy Eckstine – with a great range that really goes deep when it wants, yet still has a fluid sensibility that's definitely jazz more than anything else. Billy Taylor's on the record on piano, and leads the combo on most numbers – but the set also features some nice arrangements from Frank Foster and Tom McIntosh, both of whom really keep things interesting. Titles include "Charade", "When Did You Leave Heaven", "I Wish I Knew", "Day In the Life Of a Fool", and "I Won't Tell A Soul". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Spine has a spot of tape & a small rip. Back cover has WGN letters & a promo stamp.)

New Bobby DarinSings Shadow Of Your Smile ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Shadow Of Your Smile has Bobby working partially in that more adult 60s mode that was influenced strongly by changes in soundtrack styles – especially that 60s trend towards letting some serious younger songwriters pen important tunes for the titles. There's also a few older tracks as well, and these dominate on side two, but these are nicely folded into the contemporary ones in sound and spirit – arranged by Shorty Rogers and Richard Wess with a lightly easygoing approach. Titles include "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "I Will Wait For You", "The Sweetheart Tree", "Cute", "After You've Gone", "Liza", "What's New Pussycat", and the Darin original "Rainin".

LuluNew Routes ... LP
Atco, 1970. Near Mint- .... $7.99
Lulu's classic album from Muscle Shoals – easily one of the best efforts of this type from the time, and a real standout in her catalog from the old days! The Britpop singer really does a great job of changing up her groove here – moving into more soulful modes that are a fair bit like Dusty Springfield's shift when working in a similar US setting – quite a change from her "To Sir With Love" days, although there's still a few echoes of that charm as well. Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd are on hand, to ensure plenty of Atlantic soul touches – and instrumentation includes guitars from Duane Allman, Eddie Hinton, and Jimmy Johnson, and rhythm from the trio of Barry Beckett on keyboards, David Hood on bass, and Roger Hawkins on drums. Titles include "Feelin Alright", "Marley Purt Drive", "In The Morning", "People In Love", "After All", "Mr Bojangles", and "Where's Eddie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)
