Dinah ShoreDinah, Yes Indeed! ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good- ... $4.99
An overlooked swinger from Dinah Shore – one done for Capitol right at the end of the 50s, with some sublime arrangements by Nelson Riddle! Riddle brings a bounce to the record that Dinah doesn't always get – but without ever making the set gimmicky at all, as with some of her more theme-oriented sides of the 50s. Instead, Riddle matches the maturity of Shore's vocals with some mature charts of his own – schooled in Sinatra, and very well matched to Dinah's modes here. Titles include "Falling In Love With Love", "Yes Indeed", "I'm Old Fashioned", "It All Depends On You", and "Takin A Chance On Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, staining, and seam splitting.)

New Dinah ShoreLower Basin Street Revisited ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great later date from Dinah Shore – one that pays tribute to her initial rise to fame on the Lower Basin Street show – but which actually comes across much more in a groovy 60s style overall! Jack Elliott handles the arrangements, and he brings in a punched-up sort of rhythm that echoes the grooviness of Peggy Lee's 60s work for Capitol – a vibe that makes Dinah swing way more than the 50s, and sound a fair bit sexier too! Some of the tunes are older numbers, but really updated by Elliott's arrangements – and rhythms often have a slinky vamp that's a bit like the best grooves used with Marion Montgomery at the time. Titles include "More", "Chloe", "Basin Street Blues", "Nashville Blues", and "Cry Me A River". CD

VariousTwas The Night Before Hanukkah – The Musical Battle Between Christmas & The Festival Of Lights ... CD
Idelsohn Society, 1930s/1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A musical package that really gets at the cultural tension of the twelfth month of the year – the "battle between Christmas and the festival of lights", to quote the title – served up here in a double-length collection of unusual seasonal songs! CD one features unusual Hanukkah numbers, mostly from the 20th century – including some very traditional tunes and great tongue in cheek remakes – most of which we've never heard before. CD two is even cooler, though – a whole set of Christmas tunes, but played by Jewish artists – illustrating the cultural challenges that come from working in the mainstream during the Holidays! The mix of tunes is pretty great – from rock numbers to vocal jazz, folk, and a bit of easy listening – some familiar, some obscure – and again a pretty great set of tracks! The package also comes with an oversize book that details the songs and features some key writings on the "battle" – and the 2CD set features 34 tracks that include "Little Drummer Boy" by Bob Dylan, "Grandma's Dreidel" by Mickey Katz, "Hanukah Tree" by the Klezmatics, "Twelve Days Of Christmas" by Dinah Shore, "Holiday ID" by Lou Reed, "El Dia De La Navidad" by Larry Harlow, "Santa Claus Came In The Spring" by Benny Goodman, "It's Christmas All Over The World" by Sammy Davis Jr, "I Got A Cold For Christmas" by The Ames Brothers, "A Chanukah Quiz" by Gladys Gewirtz, "Hanukkah Dance" by Woody Guthrie, "Twas The Night Before Chanukah" by Stanley Adams & Sid Wayne, "The Latke Song" by Debbie Friedman, "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" by Richard Tucker, and "The Problem" by Ray Brenner & Barry Blitzer.
