Perry ComoJust Out Of Reach – Rarities From Nashville Produced By Chet Atkins ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1973/1975. New Copy .... $15.99 16.98
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".

Eddie Drennon & BBS UnlimitedCollage ... CD
Friends & Co, 1975. Used .... $29.99
A 70s New York classic – the first and best album by Eddie Drennon! Eddie's got a unique sound that's part soul and part Latin – grooving here in a Latin Hustle mode that brings together gliding strings, floating chorus vocals, and a heavier funk-based set of rhythms that really kicks up the groove! Club diva Esther Williams is one of the singers in the group, and the mix of strings and funk is completely sublime throughout! Great cuts include the heavily funky (and often sampled) "Theme In Search", which has a very dark groove that we can't get enough of, and the club classic "Do What You Gotta Do" – but there's also loads of other nice ones, like "Let's Do It Again", "Please Stay Please Stay", and "Get Down, Do The Latin Hustle".

Gals & PalsGals & Pals – The Exciting Vocal Sounds Of Europe's Newest In Group ... LP
Fontana, Mid 60s. Very Good+ .... $9.99
Wonderful work by this lost groovy vocal group! The Gals & Pals were sort of Sweden's answer to the Singers Unlimited or the Double Six – in that they were a mixed male/female vocal group who did harmony versions of jazz tunes, often hitting some very cool grooves, and some nice bossa jazzy moments. This album's probably the only one of theirs that ever got issued in the US – and it's got some great English language tunes by the group. Titles include their semi-hit "Soul Dance", plus "Bossa Nova USA", "Dat Dere", "500 Miles", "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", and "Lullaby In Birdland". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear, tape on the spine, and WGN marker and pen on back.)

Hi-Lo'sListen To The Hi-Lo's ... CD
Starlite/El (UK), 1954. New Copy .... $6.99
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".

VariousAtlantic Sound Of Burt Bacharach ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1960s. New Copy 2CD .... $36.99
A tremendous tribute to the music of Burt Bacharach – but one that's almost completely comprised of soul and jazz songs recorded for Atlantic Records in the 60s! Hard to believe that Burt and Atlantic had so much in common – but as you'll hear in this massive 45 track set, Bacharach tunes worked surprisingly well for the label's soul singers – including both those working on the scene down south, and those closer to the Brill Building in New York! CD one features Atlantic Ladies – a whole host of female soul – and side two features Atlantic Men & Jazz – with a few instrumental cuts thrown in next to the male singers. Titles include "Please Stay" by the Drifters, "Any Day Now" by Carla Thomas, "April Fools" by Aretha Franklin, "Please Stay" by Lulu, "Let The Music Play" by Leslie Uggams, "Alfie" by Sweet Inspirations, "In The Land Of Make Believe" by Leslie Uggams, "The Look Of Love" by Carmen McRae, "I Say A Little Prayer" by Sergio Mendes, "This Guy's In Love With You" by Roy Ayers, "Please Stay" by The Persuaders, "Close To You" by Richard Evans, "Anyone Who Had A Heart" by Nino Tempo, "They Don't Give Medals To Yesterday's Heroes" by Ben E King, "Any Day Now" by Percy Sledge, "Walk On By" by Arif Mardin, and "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" by The Young Holt Unlimited.

VariousLeopard Lounge At The Movies – Swinging Tunes From The Warner & Atlantic Vaults ... CD
WEA (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy .... $14.99
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.

New Mike Sammes SingersMusic For Biscuits – Lost Advertising & Rare Film Sounds By Mike Sammes & The Mike Sammes Singers ... CD
Trunk (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Rare advertising work from the Mike Sammes Singers – easily one of the grooviest British vocal groups of the 60s, and one with a sublime talent for mixing male and female voices into a totally sweet harmony sound! In addition to their own albums and the wealth of studio appearances they made on other artists' records, the group also did a fair bit of advertising work in the 60s – a good deal of which is collected on the set. But far from the usual commercials, the tunes here are little poems to products on their own – perfectly composed, set to jaunty rhythms, and sung with a near-perfect vocal style that almost outdoes the later work of Singers Unlimited! Trunk Records have done their usual top-notch job of putting the whole thing together – serving up not just great music, but also wonderful notes on the sad story of the recordings, and how Jonny Trunk emerged to save the master tapes from the junkmen. 37 tracks in all – including "Ariel", "Timex", "Heineken", "Vespa", "Southern Sound", "Fine Fayre", "Pink Marble Shield", "Chocolate Vienna", "Go Gourmet", "Toast Toppers", "Sunblest", "Yardleys Piolot", "Michelle", "Loxene", "International Harvester", and "Luxol".
