Susan BarrettSusan Barrett ... LP
RCA, 1966. Very Good ... $3.99
A lesser-known swinger on the RCA label from the 60s – a vocalist who hearkens back to the imprint's female sessions of the 50s, but who brings in some groovier touches as well! Backings are by Marion Evans, who helps Susan's full vocals find some nice spaces in the tunes – sometimes bold and dynamic, like Marion Montgomery – other times a bit more warm and flowing up from the bottom, in the mode of some of the more mature 60s jazz singers. There's a great hint of sadness on most numbers – and titles include "My Man", "Walking Happy", "The Carnival Is Closed Today", "Bewitched", "Mas Que Nada", "It Had To Be You", and "You'd Better Love Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Perry ComoPerry Como In Italy ... LP
RCA, 1966. Sealed ... $6.99
One of the most haunting albums we've ever heard from Perry Como – a session recorded in Italy during the mid 60s – featuring arrangements by Nick Perito, and backing vocals by the Alessandro Alessandroni Singers! The tunes include a fair bit of older Italian numbers – some sung in the language of their origin, some in English translations that we've come to know on this side of the Atlantic – and Como takes them all with a sad-tinged style that makes the album one of his moodiest ever – a record that oozes melancholy with every song, and which has a late nite, heartbreaking appeal that goes beyond even the understanding of language. The set's a great one to convey the popularity of Italian work on the American market in the 60s – and Como carries off the session even better than some of the more likely singers on the scene during the period. Titles include "Souvenir D'Italie", "Forget Domani", "Anema E Core", "One Day Is Like Another", "Arrivederci Roma", "Oh Marie", and "E Lei". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 60s stereo pressing.)

New Vic DamoneDamone Type Of Thing ... LP
RCA, 1967. Sealed ... $11.99
A surprising bit of genius from Vic Damone – an album done in a mature, adult, easy-going style that we really love! The set's got echoes of 60s Sinatra and Tony Bennett – but also shares a lot with the newer sophistication that was being crafted by some of the hipper female singers of the time – a mode that eschews the charts and bypasses the younger crowd, and goes straight for the boozy, older audiences who've had their hearts broken enough to really get the spirit of the tunes! Arrangements are by Perry Botkin, J Hill, and Dick Grove – and titles include "It Never Entered My Mind", "The More I See You", "I'll Find You A Rainbow", "Two For The Road", "I Never Go There Any More", and "Arrivederci My Love".

Helen GraycoAfter Midnight ... LP
RCA, 1956. Good+ ... $3.99
One of the only albums we've ever seen from Helen Grayco – a singer who was supposedly discovered at a party at the house of Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh – at least according to Tony's words in the liner notes on the back! Helen's got a nicely sophisticated approach to a tune – a style that's a bit dark and dusky, but never too emotively torchy – just sung with some of the spare, simple late nite modes that you might hear from bigger name vocalists on the Bethlehem label at the time. The style of the set's a bit Bethlehem-like too – slightly jazzy backings by Judd Conlon, used sparingly and occasionally underscored with strings – all with a nicely moody feel to match Helen's vocals. Titles include "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "Take Me In Your Arms", "Mood Indigo", "You're My Thrill", "Good Morning Heartache", "You Don't Know What Love Is", "We'll Be Together Again", and "Black Coffee". LP, Vinyl record album

Lena HorneStormy Weather ... LP

One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode! As with other RCA dates of the time, the orchestra's handled by Lena's partner Lennie Hayton – and has a nice jazzy pitch, especially on tunes that feature trumpet solos from Charlie Shavers. Titles include "Summertime", "Mad About The Boy", "Tomorrow Mountain", "Ridin On The Moon", "I Wonder What Became Of Me", and "Just One Of Those Things". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear, a split top seam, a partially split bottom seam, and a few stains on the back.)

Jack JonesJack Jones Sings Michel Legrand ... LP
RCA, 1971. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Proof that Jack Jones is a much better singer than you might think! Forget hits like "Love Boat" or "Wives And Lovers", and check out a record like this – a wonderfully dark batch of tracks composed by French soundtrack genius Michel Legrand, recorded in Paris with arrangements and backings by Legrand himself! The record is one of the few English language albums to truly get the vocal interpretation of Legrand's work right – and it's got a depth of expression that you'd never expect to hear from Jones, a complicated approach to the tunes that's actually not that distant from a singer like Scott Walker (no surprise, as Walker always claimed that Jones was one of his biggest influences!) Titles include "One At A Time", "The Years Of My Youth", "Pieces Of Dreams", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", and "Blue Green Grey & Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Katie LeeLife Is Just A Bed Of Neuroses ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A great little follow-up to Katie Lee's indie hit of the late 50s, Songs Of Couch & Consultation – and like that set, a batch of playful little tunes with psychoanalytic themes at the core! The scoring here, by Ray Martin, is quite similar to some of the other RCA female vocal sides of the late 50s – not entirely jazz, and done with full orchestrations – yet never in a way that's ever too sentimental at all – and in fact, in Martin's hands, surprisingly playful at most points – almost as if Raymond Scott were scoring the tunes! Lee's charm really does a great job of bringing the inner psyche out – and titles include "The Insecure Tango", "Life Is Just A Bed Of Neuroses", "The Ballad Of Group Therapy", and "We Must Adjust".

Helen Merrill & Piero UmilianiParole E Musica ... CD
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1961. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
A strange and obscure session that has the cool jazz vocals of American singer Helen Merrill backed by a small Italian combo led by soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a wonderful mix that really makes the album an unusual one for Helen! The music was originally recorded for a TV program in Italy, and each track is preceded by an Italian voice, reciting Italian versions of the lyrics over spare musical backing – then Merrill's voice comes in with a bigger jazz group, singing each track in English – a very nice level of presentation! And although the whole thing sounds crazy, it actually works well – and gives the album a compelling edge and kind of a sexy late-night quality – with great instrumentation that includes flute from Gino Marinacci and guitar from Enzo Grillini. Tracks include "Solitude", "Everything Happens To Me", "Night & Day", "Why Don't You Do Right", and "Willow Weep For Me". CD

Quire (Christine Legrand)Quire ... LP
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A very groovy little record! Quire is a harmony group led by Christine Legrand – sister of Michel Legrand, and ex-member of similar groups The Swingle Singers and Les Double Six. The music on the set is very much like that of the latter – in that it's harmony vocal versions of famous jazz tunes, done in an instrument-less style that recalls the work of the Swingles. The sound is quite odd, but wonderful – handled with the dreamy delightful style we've always come to love in Christine's work. Titles include "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Blue Rondo A La Turk", "Django", "Misty", "Body & Soul", and "Waltz For Debby". LP, Vinyl record album

Shel SilversteinBoy Named Sue & His Other Country Songs ... CD
RCA/Water, 1969. Used ... $8.99
One of the weirdest records ever from Shel Silverstein – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given what a weirdo he is! The set was recorded hot on the heels of the big Johnny Cash recording of "Boy Named Sue" – and it features Shel singing that famous tune, plus a host of other original country material – all of which is quite different than the usual songs coming from Nashville in the 60s! Production was done by Chet Atkins – who must have flipped a wig recording this one – and Shel's raspy, nasally voice is surprisingly at home in the professional Nashville backings. The record's a great leftfield country relic from the 60s – and titles include "Boy Named Sue", "Dirty Ol Me", "Alimoney", "Someday's Here", "Time", "Comin After Jinny", and "Daylight Dreamer". CD

Wonderful work by Nina – the kind of record that once made purists turn up their noses, but which is now being rediscovered as a unique jazz/soul crossover album, filled with loads of nice moments! The instrumentation's pretty darn interesting – and includes sitar, harp, Spanish guitar, and other odd percussion instruments. Includes Nina's nice version of "Funkier Than a Mosquito's Tweeter", plus "I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl", "Dambala", "Obeah Woman", and "The Pusher". LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneSings The Blues (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Nina's not just singing the blues here – she's completely reinventing the sound of the format – by drawing on a long tradition of vocal expression, and infusing it with the hipper, more personally exploratory mode she forged in the 60s! The album's got a subtle brilliance that means that it's sometimes overlooked next to her more forceful work of the time – but it's every bit essential Simone as some of her other key sides of the decade. The group is a small combo featuring Eric Gale, Bernard Purdie, Buddy Lucas, and Ernest Hayes – and titles include "I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl", "Do I Move You?", "In The Dark", "Real Real", and "Backlash Blues". CD features bonus tracks "Whatever I Am (You Made Me)" and "Do I Move You (second version)". CD

Lena HorneLena Like Latin ... LP
CRC, 1961. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A set that features lots of great arrangements from Shorty Rogers – upbeat and jazzy, in ways that aren't exactly the Latin modes promised by the title, but still pretty darn great! Rogers his hitting nicely here on all burners – that leaner 60s approach he used in some of his own great records of the time, with rhythms that borrow a bit from bossa and Latin jazz, but turn their elements towards a west coast sort of groove in the end. Lennie Hayton conducts the orchestra, but he's definitely moving in a Rogers-directed mode – much more so than on earlier dates with Lena for RCA. Titles include "Meditation", "More", "Old Devil Moon", "My Blue Heaven", "Cuckoo In The Clock", "From This Moment On", and "Take Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Lovely work from entertainer Gisele MacKenzie – working here in a sweet set of 50s RCA backings! Gisele's got help on the record from arrangers Sid Bass, Neal Hefti, and George Siravo – each of whom bring a slightly different feel to their tunes, and show the full range of the Gisele MacKenzie style at the time. Most numbers are jazzy, with a bit of strings – and although some numbers get a bit romantic, there's a surprising amount of swing in the set too – almost like some of Dinah Shore's work for the label. Titles include "You Are My Lucky Star", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Do You Ever Think Of Me", "These Foolish Things", "Don't Worry About Me", and "On Top Of The World Alone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Vik pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some seam splitting, a couple of pieces of tape, a bit of tape residue on the bottom seam, light wear, and an ink stamp on the back.)
