Singers UnlimitedA Capella 1 ... LP
MPS, Late 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Heavenly work by one of the greatest vocal jazz combos ever! The Singers Unlimited cut many mighty albums for MPS with arrangements by some of the label's best bandleaders – but this one features them all alone, with only their voices to hold them up, which they do wonderfully, thanks to some crack arrangements by Gene Puerling of the group! The approach is natural – given that their vocal interplay was always the group's strongest calling card – and thanks to sublime MPS production, acapella vocals have never sounded so amazing. Titles include "The Fool On The Hill", "Emily", "Since You Asked", "Lullaby", and "London By Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(German pressing. Cover has a few creases.)

Singers UnlimitedA Capella 3 ... LP
MPS, 1979. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Three guys, one gal, and nothing else – just voices with no other instrumentation, and one of the best-ever realizations of the amazing Singers Unlimited sound! Although often associated with the superb studio sound of the MPS label, the group were often at their best when just working vocally – letting the voices fold over one another, grow in the warmth of their company, and issue forth in beautiful waves of sound that no other groups could ever hope to match. The production is impeccable – beautifully rich and deep, with a sonic quality that never even needs the missing instruments in the session – and there's also a surprising groove here too, but one that's never forged through hokey tricks or gimmicks. Titles include the sublime "One More Time Chick Corea", plus "Anything Goes", "The Way We Were", "All The Things You Are", "I Wish You Love", "Someone To Light Up My Life", and "Sweet Lorraine". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing on Pausa. Cover has a center split on the bottom seam.)

Singers UnlimitedFeeling Free ... LP
MPS, 1975. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Possibly the grooviest of many groovy albums that the Singers Unlimited cut for MPS – largely because of some great arrangements by Pat Williams! Pat gives the group a nice little zip – with some large jazzy arrangements that aren't too goofy, and which work well with their perfect harmony vocal style. Production is sublime too – airy, but never sleepy – and the record has an incredible sound that's hardly ever been duplicated again in the studio! The album features the Singers doing some great standards and covers – like "On A Clear Day", "Skylark", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", and "Green Dolphin Street" – as well as the nice original "Feeling Free With Patrick B". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has some wear.)

Singers UnlimitedSingers Unlimited With Rob McConnell & The Boss Brass ... LP
MPS, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of the greatest albums ever recorded by this hip vocal ensemble – set to arrangements by leader Gene Puerling, and some very swinging instrumental backings by Rob McConnell! The album's got a freer, more grooving feel than some of the group's other work – with some beautiful songs that have incredible harmonies floating and drifting about. Titles include "Dindi", "A Beautiful Friendship", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "Chelsea Morning", "Pieces Of Dreams", "Tangerine", and "Laura". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing on Pausa.)

Art Van Damme & The Singers UnlimitedInvitation ... LP
MPS, 1974. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A meeting of two genius talents of the MPS catalog, and a set that's one of our favorites by both artists. The groovy Singers Unlimited get a weird moody backing by Art's accordion, and the result is a breathy batch of jazzy tracks that includes a great version of Jobim's "Wave", plus "Violets For Your Furs", "Cherry", "Spring Is Here", and "Invitation".

New Oscar Peterson with Singers UnlimitedIn Tune ... LP
MPS, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first albums cut by the fab Singers Unlimited – and the set that has them backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio! The Singers always mixed well with guest jazz talents – and the style of this albums gives their sweet harmonies a nice jazz-based groove and not too much cheese on the top – one of the leanest instrumental settings from their MPS era, and a nicely gliding groove that supports their voices wonderfully! The record includes great versions of "The Gentle Rain", "Once Upon A Summertime", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and Thad Jones' great "A Child Is Born" – as well as a pretty crazy rendition of "Sesame Street"!

New Singers UnlimitedA Capella 2 ... LP
MPS, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the best-remembered work of this legendary vocal group – a sublime session of unaccompanied vocals, done with no other instrumentation alongside the warm harmonies of the quartet! The sound here is really amazing – simple, elegant, but filled with undeniable magic – and far far different than any other hokey acapella work of the time. The acapella sound here has no doo wop or vocalese references – and is instead a warm, wonderful pillow of sound – forged through the unique arrangements of leader Gene Puerling, and carried off beautifully by all members of the group. Titles include a great version of Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Clair" – plus the tunes "Girl Talk", "I Don't Know Where I Stand", "Nature Boy", and "Lost In The Stars". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a sticker on front.)

Hi-Lo'sBack Again ... LP
MPS, 1979. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A groovy late 70s outing from the Hi Los – done at the same time that group member Gene Puerling was having a great run for MPS with his group The Singers Unlimited! The style here's a bit like the Hi Los of old, but it's also got some of the smoother, sweeter tones that Puerling developed with the Singers Unlimited – that near-perfect approach to sound, with the vocals wrapped up nicely in pure harmonic bliss! Backings are directed by Rob McConnell, and vocal arrangements are by Puerling – on titles that include "Misty", "Everything Must Change", "I Remember You", "Seems Like Old Times", and "When Sunny Gets Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Anita KerrVelvet Voices & Bold Brass ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Anita Kerr was a hugely successful arranger during the 60s Nashville scene – but even better was her work at the head of her tight vocal quartet, an amazing ensemble that had a sound similar to other groovy groups like The Free Design or The Singers Unlimited. The lineup is mixed male/female – and they sing with a tight sophisticated sound that works beautifully with the pop material included on these two albums. Plus, Anita had a wicked talent for coming up with slightly off-beat arrangements – which means that the group's treatment of the material is a lot fresher than you'd expect. There's a total of 11 tracks on this set – including "Lalena", "When The World Was Young", "Happy Heart", "God Bless The Child", "You & I", "My Way", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", and "The Windmills Of Your Mind".

New Claus Ogerman & OthersClaus Ogerman – The Man Behind The Music ... CD
Universal (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A dreamy pillow of sound from one of the most inventive arrangers ever! Claus Ogerman is a genius – that much has been proven by his groundbreaking work for labels like Verve, CTI, and countless others – and his lush backings for a wealth of singers and musicians that include Joao Gilberto, George Benson, Bill Evans, Joyce, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Oscar Peterson, Jimmy Smith, Frank Sinatra, Wes Montgomery, Cal Tjader, Stan Getz, and Stanley Turrentine. This beautiful set is one of the first to ever really pay tribute to Ogerman's art – and it's a wealth of material from the 60s, 70s, and beyond – packaged in a 4CD box with a 40 page booklet, liner notes by Gene Lees, and commentary by Ogerman himself! All the original album covers are represented, and the set even features a few previously unissued tunes by Joyce, Diana Krall, and Ogerman himself. There's a total of 59 tracks in all – and titles include "I Should Care" by Claus Ogerman, "Moonlight In Vermont" by Stan Getz, "Symbiosis (first movement)" by Bill Evans, "Aquas De Marco" by Antonio Carlos Jobim, "Joy" by Paul Horn, "Wave" by Oscar Peterson, "She" by David Clayton Thomas, "I Concentrate On You" by Frank Sinatra, "Look At That Face" by Sammy Davis Jr, "Bumpin On Sunset" by Wes Montgomery, "Fly Me to The Moon" by Astrud Gilberto, "If You Don't Believe Me" by Stanley Turrentine, "Descompassadamente" by Joyce, "Estate" by Joao Gilberto, "Antonio's Song" by Michael Franks, "Corfu" by Claus Ogerman & Michael Brecker, "I Should Care" by Diana Krall, "Smile" by Gidon Kremer, "City Lights" by Dr John, "Lazy Afternoon" by Freddie Hubbard, "Look Around" by the Singers Unlimited, "Ana Luiza" by Urbie Green, "A Face Without A Name" by Bill Evans & Eddie Gomez, and "Breezin" by George Benson.

New Perry ComoJust Out Of Reach – Rarities From Nashville Produced By Chet Atkins ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1973/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Perry Como goes country? Not exactly – as the work here fits very well within the best later sides by the magical Como – but the music does have a special sort of Nashville flair, thanks to sublime production from Chet Atkins! Atkins and RCA had a really unique approach for recordings in Music City – a way of isolating instruments and voices, and creating a sense of compression in the studio that was years ahead of its time – and which turns out to work perfectly for Perry here! Como's pillowy-soft approach never had it so good – and with Atkins' touches here, he gets a cool kind of 70s mellow sound throughout – almost into Singers Unlimited sort of territory, especially when additional singers join in. The CD features 23 tracks in all – the full album Just Out Of Reach, plus other outtakes, singles, and even a few Spanish-language tracks too – all produced by Chet, with titles that include "Yellow Beach Umbrella", "Let's Do It Again", "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye", "The Grass Keeps Right On Growin", "Take Me Home", "It Was Such A Good Day", and "Walk Right Back".

New Hi-Lo'sListen To The Hi-Lo's ... CD
Starlite/El (UK), 1954. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever album from the legendary Hi-Lo's – a landmark indie debut that went onto transform the sound of vocal harmony in the 20th century! The record's got a subtle brilliance that's hard to catch at first – a way of putting together the tunes that's often only slightly different than some of the group's contemporaries, but which already shows the rich talents that leader Gene Puerling would bring to later vocal experiments with Singers Unlimited in the 70s. As with most of the group's famous records, backings here are by Frank Comstock – perfectly poised on the gentle tunes, and nicely jazzy on the more swinging ones! Titles include "June in January", "Little White Lies", "I Don't Want to Cry Anymore", "She's Funny that Way", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Island of Desire", "You Brought a New Kind Of Love", "Fools Rush In", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Where Are You", and "You Can't Hardly Get Them No More".

New Danny PearsonBarry White Presents Mr Danny Pearson ... LP
Unlimited Gold, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lost treasure from Barry White – the one and only album recorded by Danny Pearson, one of the few singers that Barry did as "special projects" during the 70s! Like Gloria Scott and Tom Brock – two other White-produced singers of the time – Pearson's got a wonderful approach that's quite different than Barry's own work – a fragile, sensitive, sweet soul style that's a lot like indie work from the New Jersey/Philly scene of the early 70s, produced with a bit more of the Barry White flair. The sound is sublime – with magical orchestrations by White and Gene Page, wrapped lovingly around Pearson's great vocals. Titles include "Honey Please, Can't You See?", "What's Your Sign Girl?", "Is It Really True Girl", and "Walkin In the Rain With The One I Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp and tracklist sticker.)

New VariousLeopard Lounge At The Movies – Swinging Tunes From The Warner & Atlantic Vaults ... CD
WEA (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not straight soundtrack work, but a wealth of groovy jazz and vocal cover versions – almost all of them from hip 60s movies, presented here in a really wonderful package! The tunes often have the sort of exotic tinges you might guess from the title and cover – an approach that's somewhat loungey, but never in a sleepy or gimmicky way – thanks to an excellent choice of artists for the set! Instrumentation includes vibes, flute, Hammond, and plenty of percussion – and the balance here has a lot more on the instrumental side than the vocal one – although the tracks with singers are still pretty great too. Titles include "Our Mann Flint" by Herbie Mann, "Moon River Cha Cha" by Barney Kessel, "Exodus" by Quartette Tres Bien, "Kookie's Mad Pad" by Ed Byrnes, "Daktari" by Shelly Manne, "Theme From Lawrence Of Arabia" by Les Baxter, "Never On Sunday" by Calvin Jackson, "Batman Theme" by The Marketts, "It's Not Unusual" by Marty Paich, "Latin Golightly" by Barney Kessel, "A Mann & A Woman" by Herbie Mann & Tamiko Jones, "Alfie" by Dionne Warwick, "Theme From MASH" by Jimmy Smith, "Sunday In New York" by Mel Torme, "Theme From Midnight Cowboy" by Young-Holt Unlimited, and "The Shadow Of Your Smile" by Esther Phillips.
