Kenyon HopkinsThis Property Is Condemned ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the more period-oriented Kenyon Hopkins soundtracks from the 60s – especially considering the jazz basis of most of his other work for Verve.

Verve/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
One of the greatest records of the 60s – and a sublime debut from Nico, sounding fresher and less dreary here than on many of her later sides – although still pretty chilling overall!

Verve, 1966. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Laura Nyro's first album ever – and even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than ...

Something of an addition to the Verve "songbook" mode of the 50s – but it's also one that's a lot more dynamic than the others, thanks to some very jazzy arrangements from Billy May! The groove here is very upbeat and jazzy – hard-swinging in the manner that May forged with ... (Vocalists) read more CD
