New InnocentsClassic Innocents – The Reprise, Decca, Warner Bros, & A&M Recordings Plus More ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful batch of rare treasures by early 60s LA vocal group The Innocents – one that compiles their great singles for Reprise, Warner, Decca and A&M, along with some long buried demos – and it's a wonderful introduction to a should-be legendary group! The set kicks of with the fragile harmony tune "Honest I Do" – which charted for the group – and it's also notable as an early Kim Fowley production. That track and a good deal of their singles have a nicely done, doo wop influenced pop style that's got a naive charm indicative of the group's name – but there's some more fleshed out pop productions, too – and their style works just as well with those slightly more ornate backdrops. Includes "Honest I Do", "Tick Tock", "Come On Lover", "My Heart Stood Still", "In The Beginning", "Pledging My Love", "My Heart Stood Still", "Be Mine", "You're Never Satisfied", "Angel With A Heartache", "Oh, How I Miss My Baby", "(If You Cry) True Love, True Love", "You're The One" and many more. 28 tracks in all – including some rare demos and other unreleased or otherwise hard-to-find gems!

Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Not as all-out Latin as some of Eddie's other records – but a killer batch of tunes played in his firey style! Eddie's a monster on the piano – hitting the keys with intensely rhythmic lines, backed here by bass, drums, and percussion, and riffing in a style that's at once fast and frenetic, yet also deeply soulful. A very satisfying album – with tracks that include "Blues For Betty", "Sassy Little Girl", "Sakura", "Barsanova Brown", "Green Fields", and "Teach Me Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album

New Rosemary ClooneyLove ... CD
Reprise, 1961. Used ... $1.99
A really unusual album from Rosemary Clooney – recorded with lush backings from Nelson Riddle, in a style that gets past the lighter mode of earlier years! Clooney really opens up in Riddle's company – and hits a mature, adult mode that almost points the way towards directions Morgana King would take in later years. The tunes are all extremely well-chosen – and even the older numbers seem to have a more contemporary feel here, thanks to Riddle's unified arrangements throughout – an overall approach that avoids the "fast then slow then fast" mode that sometimes kept other Clooney albums from sounding like more serious vocal efforts. Titles include "Invitation", "I Wish It So", "Yours Sincerely", "Find The Way", "If I Forget You", "More Than You Know", and "Why Shouldn't I". CD

New Cold BloodThriller ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great later album from this legendary San Francisco crossover soul combo! The set moves off the style of some of their earlier work for Reprise, and Cold Blood are really opening up their sound here – still staying quite soulful, but also going for the fuller finish of the west coast early 70s scene – and not trying to sound so much like a straight soul cover band. The shift is a good one – and while the mellower cuts may be a bit too mellow at times, the group's also still got enough of a groove on the best numbers, and makes good use of the studio to work up their funky playing. Includes a nice cover of "Kissing My Love", plus versions of "Baby I Love You", "Sleeping", and "I'll Be Long Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Sammy Davis, Jr.That's All! ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
The greatest entertainer ever? We think so – and this 2LP set offers Sammy D in the best possible way to get him: live, and in the very familiar turf of the Sands Hotel. This live album, and it's counterpart (At The Cocoanut Grove, also on Reprise) are, in our opinion, Sammy's best recordings – because they feature him ripping through a bunch of material, doing lots of great impressions and medleys, and really swinging with a tight little combo led by Michael Silva, the drummer. The groove is really jazzy – way jazzier than on some of Sammy's studio LPs from the time – and he runs through a range of material from pop tunes to standards, done in a style that's far different than you'd expect for the titles. The vocals are tight, heartfelt, but also given a professional little finesse that really makes them sparkle. Titles include "Ain't I", "Another Spring", "On A Clear Day", "As Long As She Needs Me", "Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home", "The Lady Is A Tramp", and 2 fantastic medleys with lots of jazzy songs. Heck, Dean Martin never got a chance to cut a double live album – and Frank really ever did one – so given that Sammy got a chance to do two of them, you've gotta figure the format really worked for him! This is the real Mr. Entertainment, and you owe it to yourself to hear him as he really was. LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)Mass In F Minor ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good ... $18.99
A beautifully baroque batch of tracks, written and arranged for the Electric Prunes by the great David Axelrod – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that had quite an impact back in the late 60s! The record shows Axelrod's perpetual fascination with the spiritual – mixed with that great modern style of funk that he was forging at Capitol during the late 60s. The record's not really preachy, nor is it proggy. It's more of a complex blueprint of rock, jazz, funk, and touches of soul – all hung together on the same sort of "mass" structure that Axelrod would later use with Cannonball and on his own. Titles include "Kyrie Eleison", "Gloria", "Benedictus", and "Sanctus". LP, Vinyl record album

A rare album by the legendary guitarist John Fahey. Despite a cheesy cover, and the proclamation that the record features Fahey "and his orchestra", the record's mostly just has Fahey's spare haunting guitar – although a few tracks have some larger arrangements, with sort of that Burbank-kitsch old time sound that was so popular with Van Dyke Parks and the Warner crew. Titles include "Bucktown Stomp", "Om Shanthi Norris", "Beverley", and "Horses". LP, Vinyl record album

Ella FitzgeraldThings Ain't What They Used To Be (And You Better Believe It) ... LP
Reprise, 1971. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Ella gets groovy – and we love it! This album's one of a rare few that has Ella Fitzgerald breaking the mode of her more traditional vocal sessions – a surprising groover that features Gerald Wilson backing Ella with a great blend of soul, jazz, and bossa styles! By the time of the session, Wilson had honed his craft on a strong run of 60s albums for Pacific Jazz – creating a trademark groove that pushes all instruments in the group tightly together, while allowing just the right breakout modes for soloists like Dennis Budimir or Harold Land to spice things up alongside Ella's vocals. Nearly every track on the album has a nice little bounce at the bottom, and even older chestnuts are strongly transformed into a much later, groovier sound for the set. Titles include "Sunny", "Mas Que Nada", "Man & A Woman", "Manteca", "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", and "Days Of Wine & Roses". LP, Vinyl record album

Ruthann FriedmanComplete Constant Companion Sessions ... CD
Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the only full albums ever issued by the lovely Ruthann Friedman – a talent who's known both for her seminal 60s work as a songwriter in LA, and for a slew of unreleased tracks that never saw the light of day! This album's different – and is a lasting testament to Friedman's strength as a singer/songwriter – a really under-produced late 60s Warner Brothers gem that mostly just features Ruthann's vocals and acoustic guitar – a mode that might have sounded folksy a few years before, but which takes on the pride and power of the Joni Mitchell generation in Friedman's hands – with lots of dark undercurrents and surprising jazzy inflections in both the vocals and guitar. Titles include "Topsy Turvy Moon", "Ringing Bells", "Morning Becomes You", "Peaceable Kingdom", "Danny", "No Time", and "Look Up To The Sun". CD also features 12 more tracks recorded for Warner at the time, but never issued – including sessions with help from Ry Cooder, Van Dyke Parks, and members of The Byrds. Some of these expand the instrumentation a bit more – but the vibe is very much the same – and titles include "World's End", "The Sky Is Moving South", "Have A Good Time", "Carry On Through", and "Chocolate Sea" – plus an early demo of her classic composition "Windy".

FugsGolden Filth ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The gentlemen of The Fugs at "full orchestral strength" – brilliantly doing their thing at New York's Filmore East in 1968! Bawdy, comical poetry from one of the most influential groups – working here a larger scale, semi-unhinged rock and roll setting as opposed to the comparably stripped down origins. They're doing some of the weirder, earlier songs with horns and more rocking guitars – and it makes a good fit. Includes "Slum Goddess", "CCD" (Coca Cola Douche), "How Sweet I Roamed", "Saran Wrap", "I Want To Know", "Nothing", "Supergirl" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

FugsIt Crawled Into My Hand, Honest ... LP
Reprise, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
Some of the most tuneful work we've ever heard from The Fugs – tracks that almost border on pop-psyche at times, but still get nicely tripped out at other moments! Side one has the trio almost touching territory of other Reprise rock from the times – slightly psyche, slightly country, slightly Sunshine at points – and side two is a bit more of a hippy dippy freakout, with a huge number of shorter tunes that flow sweetly into one another! Some of these actually have a great sound art sort of feel, and a fw even get slightly funky too – all with a new sense of tightness that arguably gives the group a lot more power than before! Titles include "Johnny Pissoff Meets The Red Angel", "Burial Waltz", "Crystal Liaison", "Wide Wide River", "Marijuana", "We're Both Dead Now, Alice", "Life Is Strange", "The National Haiku Contest", "The Divine Toe", "Leprechaun", and "Grope Need (Part I)".

Pre-Bread work from Jimmy Griffin – recording here in a sweet Cali setting, thanks to arrangements from the young Jack Nitzsche! The album's got all the light sounds and sunny feelings you'd guess from the title and cover – but Jimmy's also got a voice that's surprisingly strong, too – really pushing its range as the album moves on, as if he's waiting to hit more mature material in later years! Nitzsche's touch in the studio is greatly appreciated too – that perfect sort of poise that made his pop instrumentation way more than the usual, with a wonderful sense of focus throughout. Titles include "Too Young", "She Used To Be Mine", "My Baby Made Me Cry", "The Bully", "You're Tempting Me", and "Cold Rainy Day". LP, Vinyl record album

Noel HarrisonGreat Electric Experiment Is Over ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $0.49
A really strange chapter in the career of Noel Harrison – best known for his vocals on "Windmills Of Your Mind", but stepping out here in a completely different mode – one that really speaks towards the hip undercurrent of Reprise in the late 60s! The album's got a LA country sort of approach – with lots of acoustic guitar in a Fred Neil sort of way – mixed with gently breezy arrangements by Luiz Henrique and Head, which feature work from Henrique on guitar and percussion, piano and moog by Larry Knechtel, cello by Fred Katz, and even some light vocals from The Girls From Bahia! Harrison's an oddly weak figure in the frontline – but the overall appeal of the set isn't his lead, but the general presentation of the material, supported by all the great talents on the session. Titles include "Another Song To You", "Blue Island", "Spider Spider", "Hello Sun", and "Nathan La Franeer". LP, Vinyl record album

New Hi-Lo'sHi-Lo's Happen To Bossa Nova ... LP

One of the grooviest albums ever made by this great jazz vocal group – and a record that's darn impossible to find on wax! The Hi Lo's here hit the bossa craze of the 60's, and they turn their vocal harmonies to a Brazilian groove, in sort of a roundabout recognition of the way that their style was taken over by Brazilian groups like Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy. The record has lots of cool cheesy vocal tracks with a nice groove – even if the bossa part isn't too authentic – and the track list includes cuts like "O Pato", "Gold Brazilian Sun", "One Note Samba", and "Carnaval".

Joe E LewisIt Is Now Post Time ... LP
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good ... $8.99
One of our favorite records from the early Sinatra years of Reprise – and one of the few documents of the talents of the legendary Joe E Lewis! After Sinatra famously played Lewis on screen, he furthered his tribute to the tragic figure by taping Joe at the Flamingo Hotel in Vegas – a wonderful live set presented here, with all the raw energy that made Joe a key inspiration for The Rat Pack!

Linda LewisFathoms Deep (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Big Break (UK), 1973. Used ... $9.99
A wonderful album from Linda Lewis – certainly one of her best from the early days, and a completely captivating mixture of soul, jazz, and rock that sparkles like Minnie Riperton's best work from the time! The album's got a sweet LA sound – with Linda's great vocals up front in the mix, and lots of nice touches on acoustic guitar, almost foreshadowing the later work Sheree Brown with some nicely jazzy undercurrents! Lewis' sound here is great – very unique, warm and sweet, with a quality that really makes her stand out from other artists of her generation. Tracks include "Lullabye", "Fathoms Deep", "I'm In Love Again", "Play Around", "Wise Eyes", "On The Stage", and "Goodbye Joanna". Includes some nice bonus tracks too – the classic groover "Sideway Shuffle", the track "Safe & Sound", and an acoustic demo of "Red Light Ladies". CD

New Little RichardKing Of Rock & Roll ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A much rootsier set than some of Little Richard's other work for Reprise Records – a record that almost goes back to the old days, but via the hipper styles of the early 70s! HB Barnum arranged and produced the set, but the groove is less funkier than some of Barnum's other work of the time – a bit more rockish in some of the rhythms and instrumentation, which is no surprise considering the title – with a nod back towards late 50s modes, but in that new-roots way that Warner was hitting with other artists of the period. Richard's vocals hold up very well in the setting – and apart from the original tunes "Green Power" and "King Of Rock & Roll", the album features versions of "Midnight Special", "Dancing In The sTreet", "Brown Sugar", and "Born On The Bayou".

Reprise/Legacy, 1964. New Copy ... $19.99 24.98
Easy to dream with Dean Martin with the record's this mellow – a great late night session that really shows Dino sparkling on a set of laidback ballads and love tunes! The style's a great reminder that Martin could be as good of a ballad singer as he was an upbeat jokester and hipster – a quality that didn't always some through as strongly in his Rat Pack years. Backing is by a cool jazz combo – with Barney Kessel on guitar, Ken Lane on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Irv Cottler on drums – and titles include "I'll Buy That Dream", "I'm Confessin", "Blue Moon", "I Don't Know Why", "Hands Across The Table", "Smile", and the original recording of "Everybody Loves Somebody".

Reprise, 1971. Very Good ... $4.99
An imagined bit of rootsiness from Tracy Nelson and Mother Earth – recorded with a nicely countrified setting at the Jack Clement studios in Nashville, then given a sweeter mixdown back in LA! As with other Mother Earth albums, Nelson's strong lead presence is what really makes the record work – slightly folksy, but really coming across here with a surprising degree of soul that moves the simple country rock mode into a deeper sound than we might have guessed. Titles include "Tonight The Sky's About To Cry", "Temptation Took Control Of Me & I Fell", "Soul Of Sadness", "I'll Be Long Gone", "Bring Me Home", and "There Is No End". LP, Vinyl record album

The big single off of MeShell Ndegeocello's first LP, served up here in a ton of different versions. The tune is just short of up tempo, and has a nice groove on the bass provided by MeShell.

Randy NewmanRandy Newman (180 gram pressing) ... LP

An insanely wonderful first album from Randy Newman – and a perfect example of the way his unique style was a key confluence of all the best elements simmering underneath both late 60s LA and late 60s Warner Brothers! There's an instantly nostalgic quality to the record, but one that's nicely undercut by Newman's familiar sense of wit – a bit more subtle here, and presented with amazing backings from Van Dyke Parks – who almost brings in a lightly symphonic touch at times. The work's almost in the vein of hipper jazz sides by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg at the time – and although some of the tunes are familiar from later versions, they still sound best here in Randy's originals. Titles include "Love Story", "So Long Dad", "I Think He's Hiding", "Laughing Boy", "Cowboy", "The Beehive State", "Davy The Fat Boy", and "Bet No One Ever Hurt This Bad". LP, Vinyl record album

NicoDesertshore ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Very Good ... $29.99
Incredible work from Nico – easily one of her most haunting albums ever, and a huge step forward even from the sublime Chelsea Girl record! John Cale produced and arranged the album, and plays some extra-spooky harmonium throughout – an instrument that's got the same low, dead tones as Nico's vocals – which makes for a wonderfully haunting blend! Parts of the record echo the minimal explorations that Cale did with Terry Riley, but in a different way – with heroin definitely playing strongly as part of the aesthetic. The album's a gem through and through – definitely one of the few crucial solo works from Nico – and titles include "My Only Child", "All That Is My Own", "Afraid", "Janitor Of Lunacy", and "Abschied".

One the surface, this stuff is just a serene batch of covers like "Ebb Tide", "Magnificent Seven", and "Stranger on the Shore", to back up Jack's title single "The Lonely Surfer". But underneath, there's this really twisted feel, with messed up arrangements hiding under these cool electric bass lines and studio strings – lurking in the dark, like Jack's own madness in the 60s! Other tunes include "Puerto Vallarta", "Theme From 'Mondo Cane'", "Theme For A Broken Heart", "Beyond The Surf" and more. CD

Gram ParsonsGrievous Angel (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
One of the most beloved country rock albums of all time! Grievous Angel is likely to have cemented Gram's legacy even if he didn't pass away before it's release – it's really that good – mixing mournful honk tonk laments, bleary-eyed barroom rockers and soul searching lyricism in a way that was pretty damn distinctive in the 70s. It's bookended by the (arguably) 2 greatest songs he ever wrote, "Return Of The Grievous Angel"" and ""In My Hour Of Darkness"", plus ""Love Hurts"", ""Brass Buttons"", "$1000 Wedding"", a rockin' cover of Tom T Hall's "I Can't Dance" and "Hickory Wind". And for all the praise we just heaped on Gram Parsons in the preceding sentences, there's no discounting the importance of co-singer and ""In My Hour Of Darkness"" co-writer Emmylou Harris, who's like the beautifully voiced angel on Gram's shoulder.

Pearls Before SwineBeautiful Lies You Could Live In (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 18.98
One of the most perfectly formed albums ever recorded by Tom Rapp's enigmatic group Pearls Before Swine – a record that does an incredible job of skirting between Rapp's earthy sense of the planet's passing, and his ambitions for larger forums of expression. The core group is lightly folksy – with strong use of acoustic guitar that goes far beyond any folk rock cliches – plus some additional arrangements that feature contributions from the team of Bob Dorough and Stu Scharf, who seem to have a habit of appearing on under-discovered gems like this one, and making them sound all that more hip! The whole thing's great – filled with beautiful songs that should have been as over-recorded as the best by Tim Hardin or Leonard Cohen – with titles that are even better, too! Tracks include "Snow Queen", "A Life", "Butterflies", "Simple Things", "Freedom", "She's Gone", and "Island Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

An incredibly beautiful album from Pearls Before Swine – one that uses light orchestrations to create a baroquely folksy sort of feel – easily elevating the album past previous efforts, into classic territory we'd rank with the best from Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen! The whole album's great – with fragile and haunting songs from Tom Rapp, all supported by sparsely arranged instrumentation that includes harpsichord, flute, oboe, cello, and dobro. Genius throughout – and a clear inspiration for music still being made 30 years later – with classic tracks that include "The Jeweler", "Rocket Man", "Song About A Rose", "The Old Man", "When The War Began", and "From The Movie Of The Same Name".

This is a classic example of an album with strengths we either refused to acknowledge back in the day as Replacements classicists, or simply overlooked – but it sounds pretty damn good all these years later.

Mavis RiversMavis ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
Maybe the grooviest album cut by singer Mavis Rivers – thanks to some wonderful backings from west coast jazzman Marty Paich! Paich brings a cool compressed swing to the set – a groove that's very similar to his sublime late 50s work with Mel Torme, which is a great choice for Mavis – who has a style that's equally smooth and warm! If Rivers is a singer you've never dug before, this set's definitely the place to dig her best – set up in the company of players who include Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Bud Shank on alto, and Bill Perkins on tenor – all of whom really make the music shimmer nicely alongside the lyrics. Titles include "Day In Day Out", "People Will Say We're In Love", "Massachusetts", "Saturday Night", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", and "All My Tomorrows". CD

An overlooked early 60s gem from singer Mavis Rivers – recorded for the young Reprise label, and with a nice little bounce that really works well with her vocals! Mavis definitely sings jazz, but often has an undercurrent of R&B – particularly in her range, which is often pushing at the fringes, and really looking to open up – something it does in all the best moments, thanks to swinging arrangements from Van Alexander, who brings the right sort of vibe to the set! The tunes are well-chosen – some pretty fresh numbers that get past overdone standards, and which really suit the personality of Rivers' style. Titles include "Love You Madly", "Another Human Being Of The Opposite Sex", "Life Is So Peculiar", "On Second Thought", "This Could Be It", and "Can I Forget You". CD

Mavis Rivers meets Shorty Rogers – and the result is a hell of a swinging session that may well be the greatest record ever from this overlooked vocalist! Shorty brings a groove into play right from the start – one that pushes Rivers past her sometimes-trilling style, and into a mode that's rock-solid and soulful all the way through – very much in the same spirit that Marty Paich or Oliver Nelson might bring to their own great arrangements for a singer. Mavis has this way of keeping up with the groove while still being really expressive, especially in her vocal range – in that way that was the rising challenge of the 60s that only a handful of vocalists could do this well – very hip, mod, and adult. Titles include "Slightly Out Of Tune", "I Remember You", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "The Best Is Yet To Come", and "I Feel So Smoochie". CD

The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly their best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to heights to match the European greats of years past who were his inspiration – and the group's tight blend of reeds, guitar, and moody keyboards gives the whole album an off-kilter sense of instrumentation that really sets it apart from the pack. There's an artfulness here that's never overdone, and the whole thing comes together with a magic that's impossible to describe, but which is Roxy at their best. Titles include "Out Of The Blue", "The Thrill Of It All", "Three & Nine", "Triptych", "Casanova", and "Prairie Rose". CD

Reprise (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Creepy, strange and oddly beautiful late 60s eccentricity from Mort Shuman – a song writer and pivotal behind-the-scenes cat who's been credited for translating the Jacques Brel stuff that Scott Walker sung, as well as for bringing Brel to Broadway! This album is a very trippy kind of coldly social and personal commentary piece – with Shuman hissing and huskily cooing his way through songs and poetry in a style that's almost more like a sound collage at points – really tying him to the hipper sides of the American and French scenes of the time. Titles include the hypnotic and disturbing "Born 1969/Hallelujah Chorus", "Mon Enfance", "To Katie", "She Ain't Nothing", "Caramels", "Sonatina", "Wait A Minute", "Free At Last", "Song For Old Lovers", and "My Death".

A wonderfully mature album from Frank Sinatra – a set that has him coming to terms with his time in life, and expressing things with a beautiful quality that almost sets a whole new standard for his work! And in a way, the aesthetic here is almost that which would be picked up by a host of other singers in years to come – the more mature, adult style of singing that came into play at the end of the 60s – a whole new version of masculinity that opened up rich new territory for Sinatra and others. The aging Frank comes off as even more thoughtful, more personal than before – full of wisdom that's brought to play perfectly in the album's classic track "It Was A Very Good Year" – spun out nicely on a host of other gems that include "The September Of My Years", "It Gets Lonely Early", "The Man In The Looking Glass", "Last Night When We Were Young", and "I See It Now".
