New Lena HorneLena Horne Sings – The MGM Singles Collection ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, Late 40s. Used .... Out Of Stock
An overlooked chapter of Lena Horne's career – early sides as a solo act recorded for MGM Records in the late 40s, done at a time when Lena was really starting to rise up in films as well! The approach here is perhaps a bit more innocent than some of Horne's later material – especially her 50s sides for RCA – with maybe a bit less swing, but all the charm and class that Lena brought to her music from the start! Backings are by Luther Henderson and Lennie Hayton – her famous partner both in and out of the studio – and there's a somewhat soundtrack-like quality to most of the numbers, with lush backings and kind of a dreamy feel overall. Titles include "Something To Live For", "Pass Me By", "Where Or When", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Deed I Do", "Love Of My Life", "Can't Help Lovin Dat Man", "The Man I Love", and "It's Mad Mad Mad". CD

ChrysalisDefinition (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
MGM/Rev-Ola (UK), 1968. New Copy .... $13.99
The one-and-only album by upstate New York's wonderfully trippy psych-folk Chrysalis – a buried rock treasure from 1968 – on CD for the first time! Definition is a strange title for the record, as the group refuses to be bound to any one – mixing laidback, trippy psychedelia, oddball folk, and meandering strains of free and old timey jazz influences! Led by rhythm guitarist J Spider Barbour, the group featured vocals by Nancy Nairn and standard psych rock arrangements, plus leftfield acoustic instrumentation and trippy keyboards! The main album includes the tracks "That Will Be The Morning", "Lacewing", "Lake Hope", "Piece Of Sun" and "Dr. Roots Garden". CD also features 8 previously unreleased bonus tracks, including "The Dues Are Hard", "Gimme Your Love", "Sink In Deeper", "Window Shopping", "Cynthia Jerome" and more! CD

Isaac Hayes/Gordon Parks/Johnny PateShaft Anthology – His Big Score & More 1971 to 1974 (3CD set) ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, Mid 70s. New Copy 3CDs .... $34.99
An amazing collection of music – and essential to any collection of blacksploitation soul and funk, even if you own the original Shaft album on Stax! Disc 1 features the original film score for the Shaft movie, not the record issued by Stax – so although Isaac Hayes handled the music, it's different from what you might have on record – and features a great array of vocal tracks and shorter funky sound cues – all with rhythm by The Bar-Kays and The Movement! Titles on disc 1 include "Bumpy's Theme", "I Can't Get Over Losin You", "Reel 4 Part 6", "Source No 1 6M1C", "Source No 2 7M1A", "Shaft Strikes Again/Return Of Shaft", "Shaft's Pain", "Rescue/Roll Up", "Love Scene Ellie", "Harlem Montage", "Shaft's First Fight", and "Title Shaft". Disc 2 features the killer soundtrack to Shaft's Big Score – written by Gordon Parks, and played with full funky style by Dick Hazard, who's getting a bit of help from the mighty Tom McIntosh. The tracks seem to include everything issued on the original LP, plus a bit more – with titles that include "Symphony For Shafted Souls", "9M3", "Funeral Home", "Don't Misunderstand", "Fight Scene", "Ike's Place", "First Meeting", "Smart Money", and "Blowin Your Mind". That disc and all of disc 3 features music from the Shaft TV series – some really under-exposed music that's totally great too, but almost with more of a crime/cop sort of style – although also with some cool moody moments too. Some of this music was done by Johnny Pate, and titles include work from the episodes The Executioners, The Killing, Hit Run, The Cop Killers, and The Kidnapping. 3CD set also features 2 bonus tracks from a single – "The Men" and "Type Thang".

Lee HazlewoodLee Hazlewoodism – It's Cause & Cure ... CD
MGM/Water, 1966. Used .... $24.99
We love Lee Hazlewood – and this album is one of his best! The record's a stunning batch of Lee's original compositions – all wonderful examples of the way that Lee could take a postwar fascination with Western themes and images, and turn it on itself to reveal the anxieties and frustrations of the 60s generation – all with a smooth presentation and near-perfect backings from the legendary Billy Strange! If you ever needed proof of why Lee Hazlewood's so great, this album may well be it – a record we'd gladly trade for a dozen by other 60s singer/songwriters. Titles include "The Girls In Paris", "After Six", "In Our Time", "Jose", "The Old Man & His Guitar", "Dark In My Heart", and "The Nights". Fantastic stuff! CD

LexiaLexia (aka Jean Leccia Interpolation) ... CD
MGM/Think (Japan), 1972. New Copy .... $29.99
A fantastic album – with a really groovy approach! The record is the only one we've ever seen from arranger Jean Leccia – and it's got a two-vocal lead approach that's pretty darn great. Soul singer Pat Henderson joins up with male vocalist Ed Whiting – in a style that's part harmony, but which also has a focus on the solo leads from time to time. Leccia's arrangements are a mix of bouncy jazz and dreamy pop – sweet and slow at times, but with some majestically groovy moments at others – baroquely skipping alone in a style that reminds us of some of the best European vocal groovers of the time, mixed with a healthy dose of California sunshine pop! Titles include the killer "Lady Rain", plus "Lovelight", "Drop", "Love Is", "Carnival", "Lovely Bird", "Only A Dream", "Mother Of Us All", and "Good Morning To You". CD

Betty MadiganAm I Blue (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1956. New Copy .... $24.99
A real charmer from singer Betty Madigan – and a set that's got a bit more flourish than you might expect from the image on the cover! Madigan's a singer who's clearly got a great range to her voice, and a technique that allows for sustained notes that hold on strongly – but the backings here also give some of the best tunes a nice sort of focus – mixing jazzy bits with tight orchestrations, all in the best manner of MGM vocal sides of the time. Betty digs deep at times, and floats lightly at others – and titles include "I Miss The Boy", "Everytime", The Lonesomest Girl In Town", "In Love In Vain", and "I Get Along Without You Very Well".

Rosemary SquiresMy Love Is A Wanderer (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1957. New Copy .... $29.99
Great work from this British singer of the 50s – a vocalist whose tones match those of the best American gals on the west coast scene of the time! Rosemary Squires sings here with a well-crafted approach to the lyrics – never too over the top, but never too staid either – a nicely punctuated mode that has an inherent sense of swing, even when things get soft and mellow! Backings are by Frank Phillips, who mixes strings and woodwinds nicely, but always lets Squires get out front – and titles include "When You Kiss Back", "Where Love Lies Waiting", "April Heart", "My Love Is A Wanderer", and "My Wayward Heart".

Velvet UndergroundWhite Light/White Heat ... CD
MGM, 1968. Used .... $3.99
One of the most far-out, freaked-out albums ever from the Velvet Underground – easily the most experimental set the group ever recorded! The album's awash in really unusual sounds and styles – from the sonic blast of the title cut "White Light/White Heat", to the 17 minute garage/psych jam of "Sister Ray" to the very odd "The Gift" – which is a creepy story about cuckolding, told with voice and instrumentation split over different stereo channels! Other tunes offset the darkness with an eerie touch of sweet – and include "Here She Comes Now", "Lady Godiva's Operation", and "I Heard Her Call My Name". Arguably one of the Velvets' most influential moments – even if it's also one of their least commercially successful! CD

New Walt Dickerson (& Sun Ra)Impressions Of A Patch Of Blue ... CD
MGM/Verve, 1965. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent album recorded by vibist Walt Dickerson during the mid 60's. Ostensibly a "soundtrack session", Dickerson freely improvises on themes from the movie A Patch Of Blue, and turns the score into a great platform for moody jazz playing on vibes and piano. Even more surprising is the fact that Sun Ra is the pianist in the quartet, making a rare non-Arkestra appearance – and on a major label, too! Titles include "Bacon & Eggs", "Alone In The Park", "Selina's Fantasy", and "Thataway". CD

MGM/Trunk (UK), 1957. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
IIncredible work from British modernist Kenny Graham! Side one of the record features Graham's Satellites group playing compositions by Moondog – the 50s NY performance artist who cut those strange, wonderful albums of spare tunes for Prestige. Graham and his group really preserve the exotic flavor of Moondog's compositions – but make things swing a bit, as they do even more on the flipside, which features Graham's own Suncat Suite. Titles include "One Four", "Utsu", "Four Four", "Chant", "Fog On the Hudson", "Sunrise", "Sunbeam", and "Sunday". CD

New Michel LegrandCops & Robbers ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1973. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Wonderful lost work from Michel Legrand – a fantastic, and fantastically overlooked, 70s soundtrack – completely essential to have in a CD version like this, since most of the music hardly appeared in the film at all! The score takes off nicely from some of Legrand's more famous work of the 60s and early 70s – with a mixture of warm themes, jazzy elements, and some of the funkier touches you'd expect from a cop/crime film – all at a level that's a bit less sentimental than some of his French film work, with just the right qualities to fit the offbeat story of the movie. There's a real Dave Grusin sort of approach going on at times – although with a bit more acoustic piano than electric keyboards – but Legrand also throws in a few softer bits to round things out nicely, and create a lot more depth in the music than you might expect for a low-budget film. Really great stuff overall – the kind of soundtrack that should have gotten proper release at the time, as it easily matches any of Legrand's bigger LP hits – and presented with great notes on both the film and music. Titles include "Papa Joe The Padrone", "Downtown", "Wall Street", "The Chase", "The Sleep Song", "The Sellers", and "Uptown". CD

New Sallie BlairHello Tiger! (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Sultry vocals from Sallie Blair – one of the hipper singers of her generation, and an artist with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Blair's a bit bluesy, a bit soulful, but ultimately a jazz singer at heart – and her already-cool style gets some sweet extra help on this session from Neal Hefti, who brings a great sense of punch to his arrangements – almost a Basie bounce at points, but with some Henry Mancini touches too – especially in the album's great use of electric guitar and Latin percussion. Most numbers have a slinky, sexy sort of groove – and titles include "That Old Black Magic", "Witchcraft", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Doncha Go Way Mad", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Early Winter", and "I'm Through With Love".

New Ovations featuring Louis WilliamsOne In A Million – The XL & Sounds Of Memphis Recordings ... CD
MGM/Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Sublime southern soul from The Ovations – a group with a really unique approach to their music! Unlike other southern groups of the time, The Ovations had a somewhat sweet style overall – one that was informed by their great love of the older music of Sam Cooke, and turned onto a hipper, more 70s-styled Memphis groove overall! Lead vocalist Louis Williams has a style that's as equally charming as Cooke, although with his own great touches overall – and the backings on some of the cuts add in a nice southern soul component, although still with the same sort of polish that Cooke might have appreciated. CD features 21 tracks in all – including their rare album for MGM, plus other singles for the Sounds Of Memphis and XL labels – as well as 6 previously unissued tunes, and one rare single for Chess! The package is a long-overdue tribute to this wonderful group, and titles include "Hooked On A Feeling", "One In A Million", "Touching Me", "So Nice To Be Loved By You", "I Can't Believe It's Over", "Having A Party", "Don't Say You Love Me", "I'm In Love", "Pure Natural Love", "Sweet Thing", "I Care For You", "Till I Find Some Way", "Hangin On", "You're My Little Girl", and "Gotta Get Free".

Bill EvansBill Evans Album (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1971. New Copy .... $22.99
A pretty sublime album from Bill Evans – one that has him playing both Fender Rhodes and Steinway, overdubbed together, for an effect that's laidback and completely wonderful! The Fender Rhodes was a natural choice for Evans – given his fluid lyrical style, and on this set (and on his equally great record for MGM) Bill opens up with an approach that really suits him well. Each track features him shifting back and forth between electric and acoustic modes, dancing from one to the other in a way that makes the instruments come together beautifully – supported by some incredibly soulful bass work by Eddie Gomez, and drums by Marty Morrell. Titles include "Sugar Plum", "Funkallero", "Waltz for Debby", "TTT", "Re: Person I Knew", and "Comrade Conrad". CD features 3 bonus alternate tracks, too! CD

LHI/Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $12.99 15.99
Amazing sounds from Lee Hazlewood – some of his most offbeat, unbridled recordings ever – and that's saying a lot if you've already heard his classics for Mercury, MGM, and Reprise! The package here brings together rare work from Lee's own LHI label – packaged beautifully with a rich set of notes, session details, and some amazing photos that follow in the spirit of the nutty-looking cover image! Hazlewood's voice is sublime throughout – that deeper-than-deep quality that always leaves us breathless – perfect for the sly wit and and "aw shucks" sensibility of the tunes – and also for unlocking the growing adult sensuality that Lee was letting into his work at the time. A few female singers step forth in that great Hazlweood duet mode – Nina Lizell, Suzi Jane Hokom, and Ann Margret – who each sing on a few tracks – but Lee's in the lead on most numbers, and titles include the previously unreleased "I Just Learned To Run" – plus "The Bed", "Sleep In The Grass", "The Night Before", "If It's Monday Morning", "Won't You Tell Your Dreams", "Hey Cowboy", "No Train To Stockholm", "What's More I Don't Need Her", "Trouble Maker", and "Nobody Like You".

New George JacksonGeorge Jackson In Memphis 1972 to 1977 ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Early-to-mid 70s southern soul majesty from George Jackson – excellent material from one of the great songwriters from the era, and a singer who conveyed deep soul and genuine emotion with the very best of them! The tracks here are the first ever compilation of singles Jackson released in the day, and have been heavily sought after almost since – on MGM/Sounds Of Memphis, the affiliated ER Music, Hi Records and even Chess – plus some excellent numbers that weren't issued at the time. The material has the feel of our favorite Memphis and other points southern soul, but with George's unique way of a keeping a mellow groove steeped in raw emotion – wonderful vocals by Jackson, and Memphis style backing of soulful guitars, horns, sweet keys, rollicking drums and insistent bass lines. The songs themselves are exceptionally great, really making the whole package a knockout! Titles include the masterful "Aretha, Sing One For Me", plus "Things Are Getting Better", "Let's Live For Ourselves", "If You Never See Me", "All In My Mind", "Dear Abby", "I Don't Need You No More", "Let Them Know You Care", "Willie Lump Lump", "We've Only Just Begun" and more.

Spring/Southbound (UK), 1972. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Ahhh . . . Great stuff! This Millie Jackson's tremendous debut album – and the work here is completely different from later records that have her more in a bitchy mode! Here, Millie's a heartbroken southern diva – right in the vein of Ann Sexton, Doris Duke, or Shirley Brown – and even though the arrangements are done north of the Mason/Dixon line (in New York by Bert DeCoteaux, and in DC by Tony Camillo), the record feels like it was lifted off the pressing plant in Muscle Shoals or Jackson! Titles include "I Ain't Giving Up", "I Miss You Baby", "Ask Me What You Want", "My Man, A Sweet Man", "I Just Can't Stand It", and "Strange Things". CD version features a whopping 11 bonus tracks – many of which were never issued before – and titles include the MGM numbers "My Heart Took A Licking" and "A Little Bit Of Something", plus "Ask Me What You Want (unedited master)", "Untrue Men", "I Don't Wanna Talk About It", "Strange Things (alt mix)", "My Man A Sweet Man (unedited master)", and "You're The Joy Of My Life (alt take)".
