The genius of 60s pop is hardly summed up better by anyone else than Claudine Longet! This dreamy female singer cut a handful of excellent late 60s albums for A&M – and this gem from 1967 is one of her best! The set's arranged by Nick DeCaro, and produced by Tommy LiPuma – all in a gently grooving mode that takes elements of bossa, jazz, and other A&M pop – and softly fuses it into a perfect backdrop for Claudine's breathy vocals – completely sublime, and a wonderful illustration of the A&M genius at work! Titles include "Think Of Rain", "How Insensitive", "Good Day Sunshine", "The End Of The World", "Manha De Carnaval", and a sublime reading of "The Look Of Love". CD features a full bonus mono mix of the album too! (SHMCD pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Really lovely work from Shelby Flint – a mid 60s pop singer, but one with a voice that was much richer than most of her contemporaries! Shelby's definitely got a slight touch of folk in her music – that trilling lyrical approach that some female folkies used at the time, light acoustic ... CD

Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy
Dreamy girl pop from the young Joanie Sommers – a set that's got the lady singing in a style that's a bit more chartbound than some of her later recordings, with lots of cool and groovy backings that give the album a wonderful sense of pep – and a slight undercurrent of sex as well! ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A great illustration of the genius of Carmen McRae in the 70s – a record that easily shows why Carmen was hipper than most of her contemporaries from two decades before! The set has the vocalist somehow managing to still stick in a straight jazz style, without going for cheaper soul routines ... CD
