LP, Vinyl record album

Rougher and rawer than we're used to hearing Dakota Staton – and a tasty little session done with Groove Holmes on organ! The tunes are mostly standards, taken at a slower bluesier pace than on some of Dakota's earlier sides – and Groove gets in plenty of licks on Hammond, sneaking behind Dakota's vocals, and working with a group that includes Bernard Purdie, Cornell Dupree, and Horace Ott. Titles include "Blues For Tasty", "A House Is Not A Home", "Candy", "Deep In A Dream", and "A Losing Battle". (Cover has a cutout notch and a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Stormy
Enterprise, 1970. Very Good+
Think what you might about Mr. B, but this is a sweet soulful album of dreamy pop songs, produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, with a similar sound to some of the work from the same time by Grady Tate. Billy's voice is as deep and round as always, and the newer backing brings a nice quality to his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Ala Lee!
Capitol, 1959. Very Good
Very groovy work from Peggy – a set of tunes tone with a nice little Latin flair! The tunes themselves are all Broadway hits of the late 50s and early 60s, but they're redone wonderfully here – so that they often bear little resemblance to the originals. Jack Marshall handled the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Only The Lonely
Capitol, 1958. Very Good
One of Sinatra's last great ballad albums for Capitol – a sad and dreamy batch of tunes that kicks off with the incredible "Only The Lonely" – one of those Sinatra torch songs that's so great, so sad, nobody else has ever been able to record a better version, nor have they ...

Ella In Hollywood
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good
A nice little Verve session that breaks from the usual format – especially the "Songbooks" one – and features Ella in LA with small group backing by Jim Hall, Lou Levy, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. The set was recorded live at the Crescendo – in a jazzily ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dyn-O-Mite
Buddah, 1975. Very Good+
The lasting recorded legacy of Jimmy Walker – and material that shows a much sharper, much smarter side of his personality than his character on Good Times! Walker's got a fast-talking, bad-rapping approach that's definitely rooted in the party record scene of the 60s – yet which is ... LP, Vinyl record album
