June ChristyGone For the Day ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good ... $1.99
That's "gone" – as in the way June Christy really sends us – vocals that take us to a place that few other 50s singers could ever hope to reach! June's work here is a masterpiece of melancholic understatement – far less overblown than some of her pop contemporaries, but also filled with feeling in a way that's different from some of the other icy singers of the time. A big part of the album's strength lies with arranger Pete Rugolo – who gives June here some of the same dark corners and modern elements you'd find in her classic Something Cool album – which really hits the right sort of emotion for Christy. Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "It's So Peaceful In the Country", "When You Awake", "Lazy Mood", and "Interlude". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing.)

June ChristySomething Cool (with bonus tracks!) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... $4.99
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. And, on this CD reissue, you'll also hear the pair in a whopping amount of extra material, pulled from singles and albums issued around the same time, for a total of 24 cuts in all. Titles include "Magazines", "Whee Baby", "I'm Thrilled", "Out Of Somewhere", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! CD
(Out of print version – with long-deleted bonus tracks! Small cutout notch through spine.)

New June ChristyJune Fair & Warmer ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Always brilliant work from the great June Christy – an album that's got a lot more darkness than you might think from the title and the bright-colored cover! The style is very booze-soaked and sad – with plenty of echoes of the classic Something Cool album – and like that set, this one features sublime arrangements from the great Pete Rugolo – who has a perfect way of shading things in with the dark tones and modern elements that always work best for Christy's vocals! One of our favorite-ever records from June – with titles that include "Let There Be Love", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "I Want To Be Happy", "Imagination", "No More", "Better Luck Next Time", and "The Best Thing For You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label pressing. Cover has a half split top seam.)

Stan KentonKenton With Voices ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Sublime vocal work from Stan Kenton – some of his best experiments with voice! Kenton With Voices is from 1957 – and features a quartet called The Modern Men, singing in styles that are very much in the mode of classic Four Freshmen work with Pete Rugolo, plus some occasional solo leads by Ann Richards, hitting an icy June Christy-esque mode. The whole thing's great – really dark and moody, with tracks that include "Eager Beaver", "After You", "Walk Softly", "All About Ronnie", "Interlude", and "Dancing In The Dark". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original turquoise label pressing. Cover has a half split top seam and remnants of a price sticker.)

Sue RaneySongs For A Raney Day ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good- ... $24.99
A fantastic album by this obscure vocalist – one of the first in a great run of work recorded by Sue Raney on the west coast scene! This session has Sue sounding a fair bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – often a bit icy, and sometimes sweet – but without some of the fuller modes on her later records. The album's got surprisingly understated arrangements by Billy May that have a nice jazzy edge – and Raney's vocals have all the wistful qualities you might guess from the title and cover! Titles include "A Blossom Fell", "Impossible", "I Get The Blues When It Rains", "My Prayer", "Wanna Laugh?", "Rain On The Roof", and "Blue Tears". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label mono pressing. Cover has some wear, masking tape on the top and bottom seams, some splitting on the spine, a peeled mark and sticker remnants on the front, and some stains on the back.)

Pete RugoloNew Sounds ... LP
Harmony/Columbia, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
A fantastic album from one of the greatest arrangers of the 50s! Pete Rugolo first came into prominence with Stan Kenton's group of the late 40s/early 50s – and he had a penchant for creating arrangements that dipped heavily into modernism, but never forgot to swing. He went on to do some fantastic arranging works for the likes of June Christy and The Four Freshman – but also managed to cut a few great albums on his own over the years. Rugolo's work for Columbia featured groups that were filled with excellent west coast players, and in a manner that was similar to (but more interesting than) the work of Kenton, Rugolo gave ample space to the skillful soloists in the band. Titles include "Come Back Little Rocket", "The Shrike", "Latin Nocturne", "Manhattan Mambo", and "Quiet Village". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a split top seam and spine, and a small split on the bottom seam, with some stains and a name in pen on the back.)

VariousFrom The Vaults Volume 2 – Vine Street Divas ... CD
Capitol, 1940s. Used ... $9.99
During the 1940s, Capitol Records recorded some of the best female vocal records of the decade – blending swing with jazz and bits of emerging R&B, to cut sides that still sound pretty darn great today, and which are often used to define our sense of the classic American girl singer. This nicely-packaged set of 25 tracks features many of the label's biggest and best hits from their first decade – including "It Had To Be You" and "Doctor Lawyer Indian Chief" by Betty Hutton; "It's A Good Day", "Golden Earrings", "I Don't Know Enough About You", and "Everybody Loves Somebody" by Peggy Lee; "Long Ago And Far Away", "Day By Day", "Serenade Of The Bells", and "Some Enchanted Evening" by Jo Stafford; "Hurry On Down" by Nellie Lutcher; "I'll Walk Alone", "I Should Care", and "A Stranger In Town" by Martha Tilton; "Teardrops From My Eyes" by Helen O'Connell, "But Beautiful" by Margaret Whiting, "A Little Bird Told Me" by Blue Lu Barker, and "It's Been A Long, Long Time" by June Christy.

New Helen MerrillNearness Of You ... LP
EmArcy, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Icy brilliance from a young Helen Merrill – a record that's easily the Mercury equivalent of June Christy's classic work on Capitol or Chris Connor's classics for Bethlehem! Helen's working here with small combo backings on all tracks – carved out with players who include Bobby Jaspar, Bill Evans, Oscar Pettiford, and George Russell – all swinging gently alongside the vocals, but also taking care to shade things in with some of the darker, bluer colors that always worked best for Merrill – and which made her voice echo with a depth that few other singers could match! Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "I Remember You", "Summertime", "Let Me Love You", and "All Of You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing from the 80s.)
